Monday, January 15, 2007Well, on Friday I was on standby from 6am, which is a real pain because you can't leave the apartment just in case they call you up. (If they call you up and you don't answer the phone they mark you absent and you get called into the manager's office) So I considered myself lucky they called me up to do a layover. Birmingham in fact.
After 7 hours of hard yakka, went past immigration and went to get my suitcase off the carousel, only to find the combination lock was off it's settings, and opened, and quite warped. Just wonderful. Baggage handlers have broken into my suitcase.
Nothing much was missing, just my mobile charger, and my replacement set of crappy pearls which cost me 15 dirhams from Karama. Well done boys, nice pick up there.
The layover was alright. I went into Birmingham City and had a look around the shopping areas a bit, got bored very quickly. Stocked up on Krispy Kremes from Selfridges and went back to the hotel.
Now I've got a heap of Promotional work to do around Dubai and Sharjah, so I don't think there'll be much to report over the next week. Hope you guys are doing well anyway. 7 comments
