Dubai,and Irish Pubs

Yay we could smoke inside!!!

sunny 24 °C

We made it!!
Sitting in a little internet cafe in Nice, (had laptop problems)the sun has just gone down (9:30pm) spectacular sunset over the french riveria, little white, pink, and blue house with shutters, cobblestones, beautiful fountains, amazing streetlights everything is mouth dropping beautiful, better than i even imagined!!Just had a beautiful meal .overlooking the old city, the bells started ringing in the towers it was so beautiful i nearly cried....Ian ate a dozen snails... i near puked watching him!!

Had a great flight, we loved it! Dubai was so interesting, we arrived at 5:45am in the morning and it was 30C. We found ourselves outside an 'Irish' ( yeah i know Nathan it wasnt irish.. but it sold Guiness!), we had a couple of ciggies and a pint for breakfast!!, in a supposed Irish Pub, in the middle of Saudi Arabia, served by a Pakistani girl. Strange strange place!! we left at 9;25am.. it was 40C we had to go out to the tarmac on a bus.. and I burnt my hand on the rail of the plane stairs..so so hot!

Had a great time checking out the duty free shopping! Have plans for on the way home...hehee

I spent most of the trip watching the map in the plane flying over places like Casablanca, Bagdad, Damascus, was so exciting ...to me.. Ian found my constant yabbering a bit annoying I am sure !!

He is at a little old bar next door to this internet cafe enjoying some local brew and local entertainment!!

Our room is beautiful, the hotel is amazing, its in a perfect place two minute walk to the beach (which is covered in round white pebble), and right in the middle of 'old Nice'. The staff love us!! Aussies.. they only ever get Poms.. and have decided.. in just 5 hours that we are much much nicer...haaaa!!

anyway... better go help Ian do some drinking xxxx

I dont think Dad needs any help drinking, he's an expert at it! How long did it take him to find a bar in Nice that serves VB??

Good to hear you made it and are having a good time.
