Looking Forward



The weight of sorting the house is upon me and I am procrastinating like crazy. In fact I shouldn't be blogging but sorting and packing! However this morning I was thinking about Dubai and how much I enjoyed living there three years ago. There many things that made it a special time. I've posted a few photos from my fortieth birthday surprise - two nights at the Al Maha Resort in the desert. I hat camping for my card from dearly beloved said he was treating me to two nights in a tent. Click hereto see the tents!






So I sat this morning thinking about the things aside from writing that I will do. This time I will take Arabic lessons as last time I didn't and I regretted it. I will take up belly dancing again (OK have you stopped laughing now?) - it is brilliant exercise and such fun. I hope we will be able to travel in the region more. When there last time with had to cope with the SARS threat and the war. Having said that we traveled frequently to Oman and once to Jordan and Egypt.




So trying to look forward and focusing on clearing so I can get there!

How superb!
I love the look of the place.

*ahem* I did belly dancing for a couple of years, too. I gave it up because the tutor wanted us to go out as a group and I didn't like the leching that went on.

It'll be fun! I'm envious. And I never learned Arabic beyond the basics either.

I applaud you for taking on the belly dancing! A very brief lesson for me a couple of years ago led me to believe there are those who pick it up very naturally and then -- there are people like me :)
