Imagine waking up next to this! [Apr. 11th, 2009|11:37 am]
susan smitten
It's antivert's birthday! We were supposed to go camping yesterday, but it fell through. In preparation, though, Don had given himself a new style while I slept.


Yeah, I was talking while that was being taken, so I look strange. Don, on the other hand, looks perfectly normal.


Random kids at the Italian restaurant were fascinated.


dubaiwalla, here's that surprise Art Deco again! Do you think it looks finished? I think it's finished. Still haven't seen it up close. Don is still snoozing, incidentally. I think I should go bang some stuff around and wake him up to see if he wants to have lunch in Karama.

And just for fun, a LOLcattish picture of the Carpark Kitty!

His mohawk is bigger than I would have expected; his hair didn't seem nearly as long when we met.

surprise Art Deco again
I think those buildings are concrete, and not steel, so they look subtly wrong. (Of course, most things that are wrong with Dubai's architecture are neither subtle nor New York-like, so this is an improvement over the mean.)

If you come here in the evening, how late will you be able to stay out?

भेलपुरी, actually. But yeah, I haven't had any चाट since getting back, and that is a terrible oversight on my part.

Tell Don happy birthday for me. I could barely hear what you typed because his shirt is so loud. :)

Most of Bur Dubai will probably be shut, but we can still walk around and take pictures.

If you're driving, I'll meet you here and hand over those books. If not, I will get a quick lunch and start heading out in the direction of the Al Seef walkway. You can get the books on your way home. Let me know which!

I seem to be able to type now!

So yeah, we'll have dinner then. (Don wants bhelpuri. Can that be had?)

Like I said, our car has problems, so we won't be driving. I, personally, would like to overshoot your part of town and pick something up from Deira that we ordered, but I'm not being successful at convincing Don.) Anyway, we'll be out and about.

And after dinner, we can haul the books back in a taxi... it's okay if it's a lot of them! =D

I'm just as happy wandering around in Deira as in Bur Dubai, but I'm less sure about where to find decent bhelpuri (and chaat in general) in that area.

i somehow just noticed that the kid in the polo shirt, immulating don's hair, has a temp-tat on his left arm, and....it's of a scorpion!

what a cool kid.

too bad we will probably never know just how much don might have influenced him during that brief encounter.

oh well.

so the hawk is no more huh? oh well.....nothing is forever anyways, right?

overt and out.


((my guess is the total number of mohawks in dubai was 4...then 5...then 4 again)) and is it mowhawk? i'd look, but i'm lazy
