Last Days

December 25, 2012
Chandler has been ill all night with an upset stomach. At the camel festival, he ate a different dish than Chaz and I and we are thinking he has food poisoning. Chaz heads to work and I spend a quiet day cleaning, doing laundry and I make a rum cake. Chandler spends the day in bed only drinking liquids.

When Chaz gets home from work we go to Carrefour to buy a printer for the apartment. We spend a quiet Christmas evening eating leftovers from last night and watching a couple of movies.

Chaz is working, of course, and heads in even earlier than normal so he can leave a bit early. Chandler wakes up much improved and eats in small bites to test how his stomach will react. Any moms out there remember the BRAT diet? He has bananas, applesauce and later fixes a bowl of soup. We’re very relieved since we’re scheduled to fly home tonight. Our flights leave around 2:00 am on Thursday morning. Chaz will take us to the airport about 10:00 so he can get to bed at a decent hour.

It’s been a wonderful trip. I have found the UAE to be an interesting and welcoming place. For such a foreign culture to my own, the people are very accommodating and I found it fairly easy to adapt. I admire Chaz for settling in and making a home so quickly. He is working hard for our family and we appreciate it!

This will end my blog – and the history of my Middle East adventure in United Arab Emirates. We’re already talking about my next visit. We think next time we’ll explore some of the countries around UAE – maybe Bahrain or Oman…time to do some research!

Thank you for reading, I hope you have enjoyed my entries.

Happy New Year to All!!
