I have arrived. Thus far, Abu Dhabi has been a place of extreme wonder and extreme heat. The heat has not bothered me one bit. We seem to travel from one air conditioned building to air conditioned taxis, to the air conditioned malls.
I am loving life here. My hotel is amazing and the staff have treated me better than I have ever been treated in my life. We were told to relax and enjoy our stay in the hotel because we will not be having any meetings or receiving any information until the 25th of August. I personally, am happy with that. It is nice to have a little bit of time to acclimate myself to the time zone, the people and the food. I won’t go into great detail for you wonderful peoplebut, the food is fantastic, but my stomach is not very pleased with it.
I am currently working on the simple things, such as acquiring a phone, trying to figure out the car situation and getting back on my workout routine.
Things were pretty well thrown off because my bags did not make it to Abu Dhabi with me. They were lost. I received them today, only a day and a half after I arrived. Pretty good. I now have my workout clothes and no longer possess any excuse not to use the wonderful gym and pool they have at the hotel.
