Besides the acrobats, as shown yesterday, Wafi City was also entertaining the shoppers with this trick cyclist. He was very good and did some quite amazing things on his unicycle.

Legs Eleven

A bingo reference here for these acrobats, doing a demonstration for shoppers at Wafi City. They attracted quite a crowd, who applauded politely during the show. The main aim was to give a diversion during shopping, as they were part of the shopping festival.

The Sky's The Limit

Besides all the new hotels, apartment blocks and offices that are being constructed around Dubai, a new monorail route is currently underway. It's a huge project and almost every road is affected in one way or another. I understand it is going to go both overground and underground & that the trains will be driverless. Should be good when its finished.

What Price Vanity?

Here's a shot of a rather vain plant preening itself in the mirror & making sure all it's leaves are in order!

There's No "T" In Coffee

I guess it's why this outlet sells coffee and not tea. As for some unknown reason, one of the "T"s has become unstuck from the wall. I hope they mend it quickly, otherwise it might cause an accident.

Mirror Mirror On The Ceiling

I took this shot at the airport during those long hours after checking in, but before boarding. Dubai airport is huge has quite a few duty free shops to keep one amused and spending. But being a photographer, my eyes were always looking around for something to snap, even though photography is not supposed to be allowed. Couldn't resist this jewellery stand that had a mirrored roof.

Frozen In Time

This rather macabre tableaux was inside the Wafi City shopping centre. I couldn't work out what it was supposed to be promoting. I thought it looked quite colourful though in a ghoulish, Tim Burton kind of way.

Bag It Up

Here's the carrier bag figure I was writing about yesterday. Quite an amusing little character isn't he. The sweets he was handing out were quite tasty. I resisted though and only had the one.

Handbags and Gladrags

This rather attractive handbag collection, is one of three promotions girls that are walking around the Burjuman mall highlighting the shopping festival. There is also a large red carrier bag accompanying them. He hands out sweets to passers by. Naturally they were causing quite a stir, and spent ages being photographed by visitors and shoppers alike.
