One of the good things of being in Dubai is that the weekend starts on Thursday.
This morning I woke up at 7am but then laid in bed until nearly 8am. There was a hotel party last night and around 3am I was woken up by the final sessions of songs. I finally get my lazy butt down to the gym. It would be my 9th workout in 6 days. I am really starting to feel strong again, motivated to get strong and start running and biking more. After so much time in the hotel gym I’m starting to see more and more of the same guest. I only managed 95 min this morning since I did not want to miss breakfast.
Since I’m friendly with the staff I feel that I’m getting special care 😉 I don’t have to order my omelets any more, while I am getting the rest of the food, they bring me orange juice and coffee. Seriously, I have never seen so many “rude” people in my life. It’s like watching 2 yr olds. I know it is a class thing, but being raised to respect everyone it is really hard to see the way that some people treat the staff. Hopefully they are good tippers.
By 11am I am back in my room. Since today is a working day in Sweden I spent time time answering emails until the sun came around to the back of the hotel. There was a cartoon Superman movie on tv in the back ground. Between 1pm and 4pm I get some much needed time in the sun and rest.
Being tired of all the burgers and fried food this week I went with a Cesar salad for lunch. I of course washed it down with a cold beer.
At 17:30 it was time for work again, so much for an early weekend! And now I’m starving….
