Photo shooting at the beach

more participants here


It is very interesting to lay on your beach bed and listen to other guest's conversation. They mostly talk about the same subject, only in two different languages, German and English. Russian I don't understand. So I sit in the middle and hear the same complaints ! Everything became expensive, the politicians don't keep their promises, the gas and electricity prices raised and rich people get more rich while poor people get more poor. The middle class shrinks. Apparently it is exactly the same in both countries, the UK and Germany, I may add that in Belgium it's the same too ! So even if we don't speak the same languages and live in different countries, we all have the same problems !

Chats at the beach

Fortunately the sunshine and the holiday feeling win and satisfied to have emptied their hearts, they lay down again and talk about their children, the hotel, the food and the rooms, and there too they all agree ! Lots of the Germans are here more than a month and some of them will even stay a month more because it is cheaper for them here then paying the heating costs in Germany !

I try to read, but it is difficult when people talk around you and you understand !

Each morning I do a long swim and my aqua gym !

I also watched people learning diving in the pool

before they take one of these boats to go far into the sea for diving. Apparently it is the paradise for divers !

In the evening the pool is also decorated with garlands for Christmas

and inside the hotel it really looks very Christmassy

You're probably almost can understand Arabic too, LOL! The same subjects are discussed in SA except now ESKOM, the national power supply is enforcing load shedding every weekend and talking of a total black-out over the whole Christmas period. Even though we're not at home, Rina is there and we'll retire there so yesterday Grant bought a diesel generator as a back-up. Enjoy your lovely holidays. Jo

You'd hear the same conversations from many US citizens if any were there for sure. Just like I don't believe in going on vacation to drink (like in your post above) so also I don't believe in going on vacation in order to bitch and moan about home! I want to say 'people you are on vacation -- leave your problems and complaints at home and relax and enjoy.' (I'd say it, but nobody ever listens to me anyway ;>)!)
