DUBAI, HERE I COME!


I am so jazzed. I just booked my flights to and from Dubai. I leave Nov. 22 and return Dec. 2. Und I land in Churmany on ze vay zere und ze vay beck -- Munich und Frankfurt, respectively.
Not bad for a guy who never left the continent until less than two years ago, huh? In fact, except for a couple quick trips to Michigan (as in a couple hours) and a hockey tournament or two in New Yawk State, I had never left Canada. And by "leaving the continent", I mean once to Cuba and once to the Dominican Republic.
Have I mentioned that I am so jazzed?
Work is being very co-operative, too. Of course, I can't go until after fall ratings, the final day of which is the day before I leave, but Boss Peter said book the trip, and we'll make it work.
Have I mentioned that I am so jazzed?
I intend to fill my one-gigabyte memory stick on my new camera. If you think Kitty posted a lot of his vacation pictures, all I can say is "Hah!"

Will you be taking the shoes you washed in the dishwasher with you?

Well, I don't mean to sound like a spoilsport, but I have no interest in ever visiting anything remotely close to the Middle East. Call me crazy.
Once upon a time, I wanted to visit the sight where Jesus Christ was born. Don't think I want to take a chance on that anymore, either.
So - How many dollars in a dirham, or dirhams in a dollar?

Three things:

1) Your interest or lack thereof, and whether you're crazy are two separate issues;

2) 1.00 CAD = 3.62609 AED;

and c) Have I mentioned that I'm jazzed?

The crack about the shoes merits no reply.
Have a nice day. :)

I have a Canadian buddy living and working in UAE. He just LURVES it!!! It's the Las Vegas of the middle east, really.

Just so ya know... your blog is gonna get seriously bitch slapped with posts while you're away.

I am with JB on this one. Although, I have heard that UAE is not anything like certain other places in the Middle East, I still would not pick it as my vacation destination. But... different strokes for different folks!

I say have a grand ole' time and make sure to take loads of pictures.

Try and cheer up will ya! It's not like we're forcing you to go. heh!

" intend to fill my one-gigabyte memory stick on my new camera. If you think Kitty posted a lot of his vacation pictures, all I can say is "Hah!" "...

That sounds like a challenge. You realize that we took almost 1.5 G of pics on our vacation. I literally only posted the tip of the iceburg.

All I can say is "Bring it!"

One thing... I'd recommend staying away from the Buoy-Bronco-Busting pics ... I'm not sure that'd go over so well in the Mid East. ;-)


Can't wait to hear all about it!
