Our holidays are almost finished we will leave heavy heartedly on Saturday afternoon.
The weather has changed a bit, it cooled down and it is still very windy. Behind the wind screen it's OK but as soon as you get up it's freezing ! Nevertheless Chantal is very brave and swims every day, I don't, it's too cold when I get out. Chantal had polio when she was 3 years old and has to walk with crutches now.

Yesterday evening we attended a show for the first time and it was very nice. It took place in the lobby and we had a belly dancer and a whirling dervish. The girl who danced was very good, because not all of them are good of course. The whirling dervish had a beautiful costume with light garlands sewed around the skirts and that looked fantastic when he whirled around. Unfortunately I sat behind a column and couldn't take good pictures, but still it gives an idea of gorgeous costume.

We all had a lot of fun, some people danced afterwards and the animation team did its best to entertain us. We had played scrabble before and were tired so after the show we went to bed.

So glad you've had a fun time. It's always sad to leave and get back to 'real' life. I love the Whirling Dervish - how fun! Your photos are lovely.

Happy Five on Friday

If Chantal walks with crutches, swimming must make her feel very free. No wonder she swims even when it's cold. Good for her.

It's wonderful to go on vacation, but also nice to go home.

I hope you have enough sunshine to keep you going through the winter. That costume looked amazing.

Hi Gattina...I enjoyed this blog post. Too bad about the weather cooling down during your holiday, but you did get to see the belly dancer and the whirling dervish...quite exciting!
I hope you are well...it's been a long time since we visited you.
Hugs from here,

Gattina, thank you for reminding me that not all the world is covered in ice as it is around here. I have been listening to tree branches cracking and thunking down to the ground...and I fear some falling on our roof over my head! I scrolled through your Egyptian vacation posts again and noted that you have been a good deal warmer than me even with your cool breezes at the beach. I love playing Scrabble with friends, too. I'm glad that for the most part you have had a lovely trip and hope you have a safe and pleasant trip home.

I really like photos of whirling dervish! Would love to see the performance myself :-)

Got to see whirling dervishes when we lived in Turkey, it was hypnotic.

Loree said...

My goodness, I don't know how those whirling dervishes do all that twirling. I would fall over in just a few seconds.

Looks like a very colorful lobby. Fun that people join in. Sounds like you are enjoying your holiday.
