Blackberry in One Hand - Sheesha Pipe in the Other

I only put the wine down for a sec...

This was our last day in Arabia - the Arabian Adventure Tour was the best thing we did. The first tour was a 'Emirates Employee Discount' that turned into a nightmare. After 15 min in the car - I refused to continue by getting out and walking back. I figured I could catch a cab eventually! Turns out they drive on the highways - so a quick jump over the fence and we hailed one from the shoulder. No problem. This tour was professional with licensed drivers and a logo on the car. Perfect! FULL PRICE~! But it was fabulous. Dune driving, Henna's, Camel Rides, Belly Dancer, Sheesha smoking, food and Seat belts required. Safety first on this tour - not the Allah screaming Red Bull drinking Nissan Mirano way! It was a brochure day.

Do you think its real?

Always in search of a deal (or steal) we visited the Gold Souk in search of an anniversary band. I don't have (or like) my current wedding band so I look engaged rather than married on most days. I've been searching for an eternity band - but not willing to cough up the coin. So while in the shopping capital of the world we thought we'd pick up some diamonds. After strenuous negotiations (yah right) we walked away with a baguette eternity band. I think I'll always wonder if I got a good deal or not - but then so does I guess now we're even!
