The taxi driver dropped us off right in front of the main entrance. At the same time many hundreds of other people we arriving. Little did we know that Saturday is the busiest day of the week; it appeared that almost everyone on the island decided to head over to this mall on the day of our visit. We had a great time, many new stores; stores that I did not spot before on the island. We enjoyed our sushi at Sakae Sushi. There was a huge line in front of the restaurant, but luckily we didn't need a complete booth, so we were seated right in front of the head chef."
