Heating Up

It’s now 7pm and its 38 degrees celcius. The car said the outside temperature was 46 while we were driving today but the weather report says it only reached 44.  Not a personal best for me but it’s getting there!

Despite the fact that I seem to be aclimitising better than most people (maybe being Australian helps?) I did notice it was hot today.  (When its in the high 30s I now describe it as ‘quite warm’.  Madness.)

We decided a trip to Dubai Mall was in order because I had heard there was a good cafe there called Kozi. Kozi is an African-themed cafe selling coffee from African beans, and staffed by Africans.  It’s quite a charming spot and the coffee was excellent… which is why we went searching for it.

    wow those shoes are amazing!!!!! (drooling here) ha ha

    • They are the most amazing jewel colours in the most amazing silk and leather. They are like little pieces of perfectly crafted artwork.

      I’ve never tried a pair on but they say they are really comfortable. Although looking at them makes it very hard to believe that!

  2. Amazing photos. As for the shoes, I look but don’t wear. They’re art; not torture devices 🙂
