“Sometimes you have to be your own hero, because sometimes the people you cannot live without, can live without you”
Did you know that the world’s largest shopping centre (based on total area) is in Dubai (not surprisingly called ‘The Dubai Mall) with 1200 shops. In 2011 it had over 54 million visitors. (As a comparison, Niagrara Falls receives an estimated 22.5 million visitors a year.) It includes a 250 room luxury hotel, 22 cinema screens and also parking for 14 000 cars. It also contains the world’s largest sweet shop (Candylicious).
A winter’s day in Stockholm, Sweden for the photo today with ice forming on the Baltic Sea. From here, boats ferry passengers to the islands outside of Stockholm, although things are very quiet at this time of year., Temperatures in Sweden at this time can fall to below -30, although Stockholm was around -5 degrees when the photo was taken.
