The past 2weeks have passed rather uneventful. I made a new friend at life group. I bought a huge, extremely comfy, bean bag chair. Well, actually it’s not a bean bag chair it’s a Comfy Sack and it lives up to its name!
At Life group this week Natasha explained to me how cellphone contracts work in Dubai. So after almost 5months of minimum contact I’m finally back on the air! It’s great being able to talk to my SA friends again.
I’m watching more movies again. I love it, I don’t always take 2hours and watch a film. I take the time I have and start watching it, 20min at a time… I watched Mother Teresa’s story, very gripping, made it through Saving Private Ryan and then last night I did An Education. Time for a Disney movie! Dramas are a little over powering if you constantly watch them. In Bloem I had a TV in my room, I really miss that here, but my laptop fills in just fine. I just miss the bigger screen in my room.
Dubai’s metro is famous, because it is the longest driverless metro in the world. Other than that it can sometimes be pretty uncomfy, too many people and way to little seats. Even so, living in a country with a metro and taxis is fantastic. I don’t have a driver’s license, but still I’m never stranded anywhere. In SA I was always dependent on my mum or friends to drive me.
Mum’s on holiday at the moment, so the first semester is finally over. I guess there’s a lot more to say, but things that I would have written down a while back are becoming such a normal part of life that I feel I don’t have anything to report.
