The Taxi Stopped in Front of the Abu Dhabi World Trade center and we  hopped out and went inside.   The cool air conditioning was a relief  from the  oppressive Heat.  Looking around it was a typical  Mall all known stores like H&M  there was a Movie theater, food court and even a shooting range, but one thing it didn’t have was people. we were the only ones there  we  walked around the entire mall because there was suppose to be an indoor Souk.  Finally we asked a store clerk and they  said it was in a building Across the street from the mall.  We headed back down to street level and Across the street  into a building that didn’t really seem to have Ac  so  it was very warm  inside  it was kind of a bazaar.  there were vendors  set up  through out the building  but the shops were so spaced out that  it felt more like a bad mall than a Souk.  I was expecting more like the grand Bazaar in Turkey  or the Medina in Fez but it was very lack luster.

After Leaving the Souk we tried to walk down the street because we were in more of the downtown area.  There was a mosque 3 blocks away, 3 Blocks  which proved to be all we could take walking in that heat.  We reached the small Mosque and  hailed a cab back to the Hotel to relax.    The Day had  been a Complete Bust  I hadn’t seen any thing of note and exploring  those site in the heat  had  wiped me out.  The  was  not much left  on our list of things we found to do there, but one of them was  to  go to the top floor  where they had a lounge and 360 degree view of the city.

we took the elevator up to the top with a family that  had a little girl and boy.  The city had a misty Haze over it from the heat  but  it was still a very nice view.  Me and my GF walked around to see the entire view  as I tried to snap pictures here and there  just so I could photograph something that  day.  The Kids we rode the elevator up with had  broken away from their parents and were playing with the telescopes and  peering out the window.  As I came around the corner I saw the little girl standing on the stone ledge of the window  looking out as the light poured in through it.  I raised my camera and tok a few  picture  before her mother came  around the other side and said ” time to go”   we  did  one more lap around the lounge and  heeded  down stair too.
