In this episode you see that with the luggage, comes the baggage!

Ramona's accusations are untrue. It never happened and it never will. I think she's jealous because Mario and I speak Italian and she doesn't understand a word we are saying.

The seating arrangement in the van was a non-issue for me. I just wanted to chat with Sonja during the ride and I wanted to be close to the driver since I was coordinating this trip. I think Cindy overreacted. 

Truly, I thought Sonja was more adventurous! Sonja's fears are understandable when traveling in a foreign country, but it's better to blend in than stick out as a wealthy American all dressed in white, wearing a hat and carrying a very large tote bag. Jill jokes about her fanny pack and her choice of clothing for the souk visit, but she was able to enjoy herself much more because she felt safe. I always say that it's best to fit into the culture you are visiting than to expect special treatment because you are an American.

Now I know the meaning of shaking in your boots! Camels are much taller than horses, and if I were to be thrown from such a high height, I would have been seriously injured. Nonetheless, I love new and exciting experiences and surviving the bucking camel will be something I remember forever.

I wasn't upset in the slightest that Sonja decided not to ride the camel; especially after the experience I had with my camel! Even though I got thrown off a camel, I got right back in the saddle.

I planned this amazing dinner in the desert for the girls and instead of enjoying the incredible food and atmosphere, all hell broke out in typical Housewives fashion. Luckily, I grew up in a large family and I'm used to people talking over each other. I had a great time and in the end, I think the ladies did too. The sunset and the food were to die for. It is definitely something people should put on their bucket list.

The spa was extraordinary and it was just what we needed after camel riding. I loved how Kelly wondered how the building was built and if they had architectural plans? The tea they offered was like rocket fuel. I think it was the sugar. The spa staff was incredible, and I was able to really relax during our time there and enjoyed the silence.

I think Sonja and Cindy have a better understanding of each other after their conversation. As for whether they will become great friends and stop their bickering remains to be seen, so tune in for more on this! 

I think Ramona should have apologized to Jill for her behavior on St. John. Ramona likes to push Jill's buttons and provoke her. I don't think Jill considers her a friend at this point, but maybe this will change. I hope that they work things out.

Bonjour my friends, until next week!
