The next morning we headed out to explore Deira. We started out wandering through the electronics market. Nothing very exciting – prices were similar to or worse than what we can get in the US.
It wasn’t long before we moved on to the Gold Market. There are more than 700 shops here, crammed with all manner of jewelery – from Western to traditional Indian. Lots of good people watching, and prices that were the lowest we’d ever seen – including our trip to India a year before. We also wandered through the Old Souk, which was unfortunately mostly closed since it was lunch time. We wandered along the port (wharfage), took lots of photos of the dhows unloading and loading all kinds of goods, and then headed back to our hotel.
