Winter in Dubai

It never gets really cold here in Dubai, so they built a ski slope inside a shopping mall. That's right, here it is

Every nite they make snow with a machine, and during the day people go inside and ski, or just play in the snow. We didn't go in, since Uncle Tom is afraid he will hurt himself if he tries to ski, and we see enough snow at home.

The mall is huge, with hundreds of stores, a movie theater, and two food courts. Here's Uncle Tom having a traditional Arab sandwich, called a shwarma.

The other food court had McDonalds, Subway, Papa Johns, Baskin-Robbins, and a bunch of other places just like home. (Do you see the Arabic writing on the right side of the sign?)
