Besides the once-in-a-lifetime-ness of the trip to Dubai, I wonder if Kyle is a genius for inviting us all to a destination with such strict laws. Since swearing is a punishable offense, I guess I’ll have to get really creative in my communication this week.
Getting to Dubai was a journey. When we arrived, it was like we’d been flown to another planet. The hotel was extravagant, over the top, and definitely “other worldly.” I’m so glad I called dibs on the underwater “suite,” a word I’ll use loosely, because it was about 10 times the size of my first apartment. I also didn’t have to share a room with anyone. I mean besides the fishes...
Lisa R. is still processing her feelings, and I am still having a hard time understanding them. I wasn’t able to make it in person because of work, but watching Yolanda’s speech at the Global Lyme Alliance gala made me maybe as emotional as Kyle was. Seeing the massive number of other people suffering from, and affected by, Lyme gives credence to Yolanda’s journey, and how she chooses to raise awareness of it.
Personally, I believe it is Yolanda’s decision who she hangs out with. Just when I thought we’d finally moved on and could enjoy our first dinner, other grievances were resurrected. Erika’s dinner party was brought up, as well as the weird gossip-double-cross of Kathryn about Lisa V. Maybe only the beauty of the Dubai skyline at night could distract us from continuing down that rabbit hole.
But the Dubai skyline can only save us temporarily. Stay tuned for next week, where there’s a very real possibility I’ll get arrested for cursing and/or using my middle finger.
