Tired in Dubai

overcast 38 °C

So here I am in Dubai after a VERY long flight where we had 18 children on board under the age of eight. Even with that it was actually a great flight. I had heaps of leg room and good company. I learnt some Turkish off a woman who is travelling to Istanbul to visit her parents. All in all I've had a very pleasant trip so far. Rediculous number of movie options to watch and as per usual...I didn't sleep too well.

It is 38 degrees here which was quite a shock when we got off the plane onto the tarmack.

Right now I'm waiting for my connecting flight to Istanbul. I've had a rather dissapointing coffee which was more like hot soy milk with a bit of nutmeg, which cost me...wait for it....are you sitting down? US$5!!! It was a small coffee too. Dón't think I'll have an issue with weak coffee once I'm in Turkey!

Dubai airport is strangely sparce of people right and quite a sight. It has fountains and pristine pools with huge goldfish. I'm standing at an internet kiosk - I've managed to get the last stand which is clearly designed for someone at least six foot two...I am most definately not six foot two so I feel like I'm a kid sitting at the adults table.

I can hear the sound of muslims praying which is hauntingly beautiful. Lots more of that to come :)

My arms are starting to hurt having to hold them so high to type so I'll sign off now.

Next stop Istanbul!
