After a gruelling day spent at Heathrow airport (you would not believe. Read it all here), I am finally in Abu Dhabi for Spring Break. I'm not sure if I'm ready to call here my home yet, as when we were shipped off here from the Caribbean by my parents, I had applied to colleges and started studying in London the same year. So, I've never really gotten a proper chance to live here like the rest of my family has. I mean, my 12 year old sister has a local boyfriend and plays arabic pop on her iTunes and my brother is pretty much the popular guy in his school, with some seriously gorgeous eye-candy.
Nothing's happened so far here yet worth talking about because I am severely jet-lagged, having been living on San Francisco time since January IN LONDON, and now, that makes an entire 11 hour difference and it feels like I have been upturned, like a mammoth hourglass. So, I've been spending it in my air-conditioned room, sleeping, trying to mouth Arabic TV ads for cream cheese (they love that shit over here. I mean COVET) and 'Fair and Lovely' products; yes, of course; skin-bleaching products. Had no idea?
I'm starting to use my TravBuddy account more now while here because I think it's time I take a break from the literary essays and core texts to explore this place a little.
SO, having said all that, all I've got is a pic of the magnificent mosaic tiled hub of the Abu Dhabi Intl Airport, and two of my room, which looks fantastic, thanks to my interior decorator mom missing me and having nothing to do. I wanted to take a picture of it before it got wrecked from my inhabitance. MORE LATER!
