One of my best friends Jennifer came to visit me from Florida last week.  We did all the Dubai things I was too afraid to do on my own.  Like brave the chaotic streets of the Old Dubai Souks in Deira.  She is pretty much like me when it comes to shopping.  Our motto to every store employee or shop owner is “Don’t talk to me”.  I’m not sure if that’s an American thing or a I don’t have any idea how to haggle thing.  Our first mistake we made was arrive hours before the shopping rush.  No one was there but the little shop salesmen.  Is that what they’re called?  Imagine Agrabah from Disney’s Alladin on steroids and the only customers are two scared white girls who don’t want to be talked to.  Every salesman was on us like flies on a date.
