Walking Around

While in Dubai for two days we walked nonstop back and forth between places, their isn’t too many places which are designed for walking. There are lots of entrances and exits into the Mall but their are a lot of areas around it to walk and also other places in Dubai that you can walk a lot indoor or outdoors. The first day my calves were straining but the second day it was a bit better, I don’t walk around as much in Kuwait. The only place to walk as much is inside Avenues Mall and by the Scientific Center. There needs to be more development of our areas for people to walk, I see people walking every day in the Mishref walkway but there has to be other areas which can be nicer and more fun to walk, they can develop those areas and make more interesting. The area in front of Blajat which has been under construction for a long time now. The Showbiz which was under construction then Parliament took it away and did nothing with for three years now and counting. There are open spaces in Kuwait but they do need some work to look good and attract people to them. The Scientific Center was a fantastic idea and lots of people love it, it needs some improvement these days but we want more ideas such as those. Marina Waves and Marina Crescent are also areas that people enjoy walking, we need more waterside developments, and there are a long list of developers who are willing to do build them.
