Dec 23 - To Mena Center and Market

To downtown today looking for grass and flowers to plant.  First stop, Mena Center.



About 1/2 mile away, open air market called Mena Market, where all sorts of plants and outdoor living stuff can be found, as well as the closest thing we have seen to a bazaar, where you can but just about anything for the right price.

Across the street as we enter, building under construction.  You can see hoe the exteriors and interiors are finished.





Unusual, this bougainvillea - several plants atop a dead tree limb to look like a flower tree.


From pots to a Victrola

At the mall and TGIFriday's.  Non-alcoholic drinks only in UAE.
