Arabian Fun!

Today our cruise ship reached it's first mysterious destination which I was really happy about because I was starting to feel a bit sea sick after a whole day and night bobbing up and down aboard the ship.

I was so surprised when I found out that we were going to be spending the whole day and night in the Arabian desert, it was so hot. I spent most of the afternoon learning how to belly dance but I wasn't very good at it. I did have lots of fun during the lesson but it was to hot. At one point I thought I would pass out from heat exhaustion but I had a nice cold drink and a quick rest inside my tent which made me feel much better. I'm so not used to this heat.

At night time we had a lovely feast with all kinds of exotic food and drinks that I had never had before and we had entertainment from a snake charmer while we ate our food which was so much fun to watch. After I had finished eating and drinking at the feast I decided to go for a closer look at the snake charmers snake. I was kind of nervous because I hadn't seen a real snake before but you know what?? The snake wasn't even a real snake. It was a fake snake that was made to look like a real snake. I felt a bit disappointed when I found this out but didn't let it spoil our fun. Kody wasn't impressed with the snake either as you can see on my picture. Anyway I'm so tired after all today's activities so I'm going to go see if I can actually manage to fall asleep in this intense heat now.
