From day 1 to day 5, I got up around 8 am, went with my little computer to the morisco decorated room where I have internet connection and checked if my post was published. When finished I had my breakfast.
The dining room is always very nicely decorated.. Then I go back to my room, leave the computer there, take my Kindle, suncream etc and settle down on my beachbed at the swimming pool. There I start my daily work by taking sunbath, reading and chatting. Around noon I go swimming in the indoor pool, where I am always alone and have the huge swimming pool all for myself. At least the water is very warm and birds are chirping inside, they have built nests on the warm tubes or spots. Very cute.
Back to my room, I quickly change for lunch. Just throw a kaftan over my bathing suit.
The animation program is just hanging besides the bar, where the shows take place. There is also a beautiful little inside garden with flower pots, rocks and pebbles. At 10.30 the bar opens and all beer, cocktail or other strong stuff drinkers are hurrying there to get their first glass followed by many others. The hotel does "all inclusive" prices so they all drink a lot because it's free (or at least they payed already) One morning a guy made a mess because he asked for a Wodka at 8 am !!
During lunch and supper the girls from the animation team always ask me if they could sit at my table. Of course I am happy to have their company, these are such nice Tunisian girls who all speak perfectly French and I learn a lot about Tunisian modern women who are very much the same as we in our western world. I also learn a lot about Tourist behavior ! Some are really a disaster !
Then I go back to "work". It's funny to see the Tunisians in thick winter jackets besides the sun hungry half naked tourists. 24°C for them is cold ! The cleaning women are cleaning the whole day the rubbish away which uneducated tourists leave behind !
After supper I go back to my little internet place and watch a little movie on my Kindle. So far I didn't like the shows, it's so noisy and I need rest.
I tried to take a picture of my place myself, as there was nobody and managed to take pictures of my nose, my shoes, half a face and my Kindle and the waterpipe.
Around 10 pm I am so tired from the sun and the fresh air and just doing nothing, that I fall into my bed and sleep like a baby.
The roommates spoil me, I found my bed like this yesterday evening. I think when I come back I have to ask Mr. G. to do the same for me ! I wonder how the swan will look like !
