With Dubai holding planetary records for having the biggest, the pharaonic, the ultimate and all the superlative descriptions they could come up with about their shopping malls, I thought it would be wise to go on a mall hopping tour while here and see for myself the magnitude of these superstructures, take a lot of shots and start a series entitled Mall Hopping in Dubai.
To start the ball rolling, I shall talk about Mall of the Emirates (MoE).
This is the glass and metal dome of the MoE which reminds me of the glorious domes of Europe. Not that those in Dubai could equal the real thing…
The courtyard of the Fashion Dome is bordered by international restaurants, among them is the Tribes (in photo) which specializes in African cuisine as complemented by the costume of the staff
I never imagined that I could find Fauchon in Dubai!
The famous French perfumery, Sephora, is in the MoE
Aahhhh….Galliano. A fashion giant in the making. John Galliano is the fashion designer for Dior: quite a mystical personality but a formidable character in the European Fashion scene.
