Today was a lazy day for me, I didn't move at all and spent the whole morning with Nicole and Dominique at the swimming pool of the hotel.

After lunch it was so hot, that I had to stay inside the Hotel and did some Blog work and sorted out my pictures. The temperature was again 50°C (122 F)  !

Late afternoon the others went with a Landrover to an Oasis, which I had seen already so I stayed at the beach and read my book. There was nobody else and I had the whole swimming pool all to myself.

Amongst the pictures I took from "my" camel I found this one.

Apparently he loved my presence because he rolled around in the sand like a cat !

I love your last pic!! the camel with feline poses! I wonder how you can stand the heat, we reach 28ºC in August, which together with high humidity is simply unbearable. I assume the climate is very dry over there.
The hotel seems wonderfully quiet, maybe the guests are hiding in the air-conditioned rooms!

Gosh, I am already melting at 34ºC here in Singapore!

It seems a lovely holiday for you Gattina. *envy* wish I were there with you by the pool.

wow it's a great idea to stay at the pool with this hot temperature!
And this hotel looks great indeed, so nice that you are enjoying the wonderful Summer weather there.

Yes, what a cute camel, and me too, I find the heat very difficult to take sometimes. Keep drinking (water) - absolutely essential.

Best Wishes Biddy

That camel is adorable. That pool looks like a wonderful place to relax at.

Beautiful views of the hotel, and the camel is so funny! It must have known that you are a cat lover!

Oh that camel looks like Ginger rolling in the sand. He knew an animal lover when he saw you and struck up this pose. Looking forward to reading more of your travels. xxx

Sounds like a good move to stay in the cool at those horrific temperatures
