Taking Dubai: Day 1

Water, cold compress, and reflection. We just concluded our first full day in the UAE.

Yesterday's 14 hour flight didn't seem too bad. I walked the plane often to keep as healthy as possible. When I arrived at my hotel and looked at my feet, I didn't know what to think. They were so swollen... Overcome with exhaustion, a stiff back, and swollen feet, I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. I'm still experiencing swelling, so my ankles and feet are wrapped in cold compresses. Here's hoping for improvement!

After a nice start to our time in Dubai, I am once again ready to rest my head for the night! Class discussions begin tomorrow and so does intense exploration! Today, we hit up two malls just to get acquainted with the culture. Oh my, the shopping! I did well though, resisting temptation. I don't want to spend all my dough in one day. Plus, I am looking for those one-of-a-kind, locally made pieces.

Most people wonder about the weather/temperature. Yes, it's hot! But, surprisingly not overwhelming.

Here's a snapshot into the beginning of our adventure:

  1. Wow! I am so glad you updated already! I actually was just thinking to myself "I hope Megan will get internet!" I have never experienced any swelling from long travels... I can't believe your feet are swollen :(
