I’m sitting here on my hotel room bed, feeling rather stuffed. I have eaten some amazing meals here in Dubai over the last 2 days and probably eaten more in the last 2 days than I have in the last 3 weeks. The breakfast buffet this morning must have been the biggest buffet I have ever seen.
We have just returned from dinner in the Ronda Restaurant at the Atlantis Palm Resort and it was just amazing.
I woke up this morning struggling to walk. My hip started playing up over night again. And of course I did not bring my pills with – probably because I have not had any need to take any for the last 2 months since I started dancing. Anyway, it was a good excuse to go the the Mall of the Emirates today while the kids were at the beach with their cousin. Spent hours in the Virgin store drooling at all the gadgets and then eventually admitted I needed my pills.
Found the pharmacy and asked for some of the pills I use (Arcoxia 120mg). Usually only available on a script back home so didn’t think they would give me any. Pharmacist happy to give them to me – no questions asked and no script needed. Strange that a country who is so sensitive about drugs issues medication like this without a script. But hey, I’m not complaining – I should be pain free by tomorrow.
Went to the pool this afternoon. Weather is still not great here. The sun is shining but there is a really cold breeze, so we only spent an hour or so at the pool. Had a swim with my son and thought I was going to freeze to death when we got out.
An Easter Egg shop opened up at the resort today so we had a look around. Saw the following chocolate figure (see pic at end of post) in the middle of the shop and thought it looked very “phallic”. But maybe that is just all the Cadbury Creme Eggs talking – let me know your thoughts on it…..
Ciao for now
