First few days in the UAE

Hey there everyone! I wish I had a few photos to show off. I will soon! This week and next week are the "getting settled in" weeks. Next week I will be cleaning, furnishing, and decorating my apartment. I will post pics as soon as it’s done! Then I will begin my training! I also will be traveling to Germany November 2 for a women’s conference. I get to wear winter clothes! For those of you who are not aware of the UAE climate is hasn't been cooler than 98 degrees since I have been here. Last week it was over 110'! ( : YES, I have been wearing my sunscreen ( ;

I arrived to my final destination without a hitch. I had to run to the gate to catch the second leg of my flight from London to Dubai. I had an hour and a half layover (I don’t recommend.) and security was backed up. I then had to take a tram to my gate, two elevators, a few escalator...ran up to the attendant *huffin' and puffin'* and asked, "did I make it?!"..."Yes" and then I let out a loud declaration of excitement as I made my way to the terminal!

It really was that dramatic. ( ;

As soon as I have more internet time I will do more blogging! Thank You for all your support!
