The Souks

Today we ventured out in 100 deg heat.

We went over to old Dubai to visit the Spice and Gold souk.

First we had to cross the creek on an Abra, which at least caused some breeze 🙂

The spice souk was very colourful, I was looking for saffron but was very tempted with the wonderful smelling vanilla .

In the end I settled for 2g of saffron, which Geoff bought me , and I will have to wait till Christmas before I can use any.

We also bought some crystal Alum to try ,which is a natural deodorant.

Now the gold souk was amazing,shop after shop filled with gold jewellery,the amazing thing was all the shops were
packed with people .

The earrings took my eye especially the ruby ones but at almost £500 I decided to give them a miss.

After 6 hours in that heat we cooled down in the pool 🙂

Before ending the day with a swim in the sea , the warmest sea I have ever swam in, while watching the sun set.
