Highlights of my week in Jeddah
February 2, 2011
You know how your week goes by, and there are some conversations you simply can’t stop thinking about…
Here are some of mine.
On the terrible Jeddah floods:
“I’m a rescue diver and I got my certificate from Sharm Il Sheikh. I once saved a man from drowning and a shark bit me, here you wana see the scar?”
Me: “No thank you”
After the flood….
“The Saudi Civil Defence sent all us divers a text message asking us to join the rescue team”
Me: “Great! Did you go?”
Her: “No, because the water is dirty and I can get diseases”
On Dubai’s economy:
“Dubai is going down very soon. They are a country built on slavery.”
On “The King’s Speech” (the movie):
Me: “I’m watching The King’s Speech.”
Her: “Oh he’s back?”
Me: ” Umm I mean the movie”
Her: “How am I supposed to know, all you’ve been talking about these days is politics” ❤ lool love u!
“I don’t get why people can’t have a revolution in peace”
A tweet on Egypt:
“He’s the King of De-Nial”
“Apparently a massage makes you lose cellulite”
On feminine matters:
“Honey, does it still hurt you when you pms?”
It’s been one hectic week/ 14 days.
