First stop was the souks, which are kind of like a specialty store area/marketplace. Because of the rains, many roads were flooded. I ended up buying a DVD with "Resident Evil I/II/Shaun of the Dead, Ghosts of Mars, and Underworld" on it. Nice little zombie theme, eh? At another store, I found a pretty cool ringer t-shirt...white with red trim and it looked like a Diesel knock-off for 25 riyal. It had a glow in the dark dragon with red eyes.
From there, it was on to the mall, where I had McDonald's in the food court. It just didn't taste right. Also had Starbucks (caramel macchiato and tiramisu) with Tate and Ed from the 1 ERHG. Wandered the mall for three hours. Heard a funny song to the tune of Yankee Doodle:
"ET was an alien,Then ET sang something along the lines of "dum dum dee dee dee, my name is ET."
and he was rather spacey,
caling for the universe to party and go crazy!"
I also bought a can of Pocari Sweat from the Carrefour supermarket. Drank it while waiting at the meeting point. We left the mall, hit one more where there were chickens playing in a band for Eid week celebrations.
Went over to "the Pearl Guy," took a few nighttime photos of the lights around the Corniche. Bought a pair of single-pearl necklaces and one pair of earrings for QR250.
Stayed up to watch three quarters of the ATL-PHI playoffs.
