Destined to be here

On the penultimate day of my UAE trip, my uncle and I drove back from Abu-Dhabi to Dubai by 4.30pm with hopes of covering the Mall of Emirates which was rated highly by my uncles.

The journey was very eventful, we took the 'exit' to Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi. The whole exit concept was very new to me coming from Bangalore where there are more exits(cross roads) than freeways.
That said our next few minutes was encircling the Yas Marina circuit with roads seeming as good as the racing circuit. I didn't stop to click pics, thanks to the hectic schedule I put myself too.

We headed further to see the mall. This is where the exit, freeway system confused us big time. All the exits were either to the Metro station or some other places and within moments the Burj Khalifa started appearing in front us.

Suddenly, I realised that I hadn't seen the musical fountain which operated only post evenings and we took the exit. Not to be surprised the exit somehow seemed exit to nowhere. After much shuttling about we got to Dubai mall, where the Burj khalifa is erected.

And what waited for me and of course for half a thousand onlookers was one of the most beautifully choreographed musical fountains.

Parkings are another story in these malls I tell you. That we came out of the mall's maze like multistoreyed parking lot with a lot of drive-by would be an understatement.

In the end, all is well that ends well.

These exits & freeways confuse me too, since I'm used to the roads down here, where even highways look like narrow street lanes! And how was the mall experience eventually!
