In the evening I went out to eat and shop at the nearby “City Center Mall”.  Quite a spectacular mall.  Found a mall food shop that was serving middle eastern food and had some Shish Tawook - it was really good.  The mall is full of western fast food places too - Burger King, McDonalds, etc. hard to get away from them.  The mall also had an ice skating rink !!!  See picture to the right.

I also did some spot grocery shopping at, Carrefour, their version of WalMart.  Got some really good Arabian Coffee !

First day of classes tomorrow...More later !
