What a time to be alive with conveniences like Uber when we need a ride or Uber eats when we don’t feel like cooking. In my lifetime there was such thing as letters that you sent in the mail. I actually had a penpal back in those times. I mean it was my cousin, but still, we sent actual letters through the actual mail. It is amazing that writing letters were a thing that existed now that we have email. There is also What’s App. Before What’s App, I ran up my mom’s phone bill trying to stay in contact with this guy I met in Jamaica. This is when people used calling cards. You went to the store and bought cards with minutes when those minutes ran out the call would drop. My little desperate teenage self decided to use the regular phone line when I ran out of minutes and got myself into trouble. Anyway now there is What’s App, Hallelujah and this is how I maintain my long-distance relationship.
I went to Barbados from Kuwait and let me tell you it was a journey for real. It basically took about 36 hours of total travel time. I had two long layovers and 1 long flight. With a journey like this, of course, I have stories.
First, I’m going to start with the fact that the employees at Doha Hamad Airport in Qatar are the most pleasant people I have ever come across at an airport. There is a huge difference between Kuwait’s Airport and Qatar. Besides the actual set up and feel, Qatar is just better by a long shot.
Now my favorite leisure activity is Brunch. Brunch is basically just a late breakfast. I can’t think of anything particularly special about brunch, I just love it. Now imagine all the food stations you could possibly think of plus unlimited drinks. This was brunch in Bahrain. There was a burger station, a soup station, a salad station, an international food station, a sushi station, and a dessert station, and there even was ice cream. There was so much food. When I first got there with my friends it was only us and another group of people there. I was worried that all that food would go to waste. After about 30 minutes people started piling in. People from all walks of life. That is one thing that makes Bahrain different from Kuwait – diversity. The brunch was half the day and after it was over there was a little after party.
“Disney World for Adults”
Since 2016 I have been hearing about this amazing place called Dubai. Songs were made about it. Influencers have beautiful photos taken here. I even heard that Dubai is the Disney World for adults. I finally took a trip to Dubai and made my own discoveries. I went with two friends and we met up with another friend that lives there. Dubai is definitely a must see place if you have the money.
I have been MIA for a while and I left off with a natural hair post. I have not forgotten about it. Actually, writing on this blog is always on my to-do list, but more urgent task always pop up. Anyway enough of that.
I went back to the DMV for the holidays. For those of you who do not know the DMV stands for D.C, Maryland, and Virginia and includes the surrounding areas near D.C. There are D.C. natives who police those who say they are from the DMV, but even airports that are far from D.C. claim they are in D.C. Take Dulles for example, it is located 26 miles from the city and if you look up airports in D.C., this is one of three to pop up.
