Our last hot, beautiful, gorgeous day in Abu Dhabi...what to do, what to do? For starters at 9 a.m., I headed for the spa....ahhhh, heaven. And I sent John to the front desk to request late check out and secure a good place by the pool. He did both and by the time I was done with my full body massage and facial, he and Bruce were waiting for me poolside with drinks and eats! Ahhh what a wonderful way to spend the last day in paradise.
As most of you my friends know, in the past two years I have been suffering from some kind of sun allergy. I take zyrtec, benadryl, wear big floppy hats, sunscreen and anything to keep the hives and redness at bay when I am in the sun, and for the most part it works. This time the meds kept the itchiness and welts away but the redness came on me after a short hour in the sun. I spent my day going in and out of the hotel, alternating between the pool and the lobby. I never had a full on itchy hive attack, but the redness did make an ugly appearance but for 80% percent of my day I had a great time.
Last pics of this weekend are posted here. I hope that with my posts and pics you were able to get an idea of our long weekend in Abu Dhabi, and I hope in some way it has inspired you to someday want to to check out this part of the world.
