Some places we've been and some places we're going.


After about 5 hours sleep this afternoon I now feel capable of writng a post. During the overnight 13 hour flight from Adelaide to Dubai Alex managed a few hours of sleep but I struggled to get a couple so my eyes have been sore and my brain hasn’t been sharp all day. When the plane flew into Dubai it was raining and that continued as the taxi brought us to the hotel. Apparently everyone is stunned by the amount of rain they’ve had here this month, there have been floodings and even some drownings. Water is still lying in places and we’ve had to choose our paths carefully. I’m not sure how substantial my sandals are.
We’ve walked along “the creek”, travelled across to Bur Dubai on a water taxi and strolled through lots of bazaars. Alex has been singled out for attention because of the moustcahe he’s cultivated over the last month or so. Vendors tried to get his attention with calls of “Moustache” and “Professor” but my favourite was the guy who grabbed him and insisted on fitting him with a keffiyeh while marvelling, “You have Sheik’s skin but GOOD moustache”.

  1. Love Alec’s ‘new’ look! Glad you are having a ‘stop-over’!

  2. alex’s faceful of hair is very fine more impressive is the luxurious hotel. It was nice to hear how things are going so far. whenever I think of travelling I think of the plane trip and how I dont cope well with it.

  3. Thank you for the photos and comments. The airport makes Adelaide’s look very insignificant. Is Alex going to grow the moustache so he can twirl it at the ends?
