Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque


Za vse, ki vam še ni uspelo priti do Abu Dhabija, da bi si ogledali veliko mošejo šejka Zayeda, lahko to sedaj naredite kar iz naslonjača. Preko street viewa, seveda.

For all of you who have not yet managed to get to Abu Dhabi to see the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, you can now do this from the armchair. Via Street View, of course.

Misija: Puščavska lisica / Mission: Desert fox


Spakirali smo vso prtljago za kampiranje, avto naložili do strehe, da se je že na daleč videlo kot, da se peljejo Romuni in se odpravili novim dogodivščinam naproti. V puščavo. Na piknik. Še prej pa po čevapčiče k Srbu. To nam je pripadalo.

We packed up the entire luggage for camping, car loaded to the roof (it seemed like the Romanians are coming, no offense) and looking for a new adventures. In the desert. To have a picnic. But before that we had to pick up ćevapi at Serbian guy. Fair enough.  

Na koncu je tako pihalo, da kampiranje v puščavi ni bilo mogoče. Smo pa naredili en điro. Potem pa domov s čevapčiči direktno na žar.

It was so windy that camping in the desert was not possible. So we decided to go on for a dune riding. After that we went home to grill čevapi and have traditional balkan meal.


V bistvu smo se peljali precej hitreje kot se vidi v posnetku. In tisti deli ko se spuščamo po sipinah... tam sipine niso bile tako zelo nizke kot zgledajo. Je pa res, da smo šli mi malo bolj na ziher, kot šoferja pred nami. Še posebej prvi ima res veliko izkušenj, zato je lahko malo bolj pritisnil na gas. Naslednjič njemu montiramo go pro na havbo.

In fact we drove much faster than you can see in the video. And those parts when we descend dunes... they were not as small as they seem. And it is true that our driver was driving a little bit carefully than a driver in front of us. Especially the first one has a lot of experience, so he can press a little bit more on the gas.
Next time camera will go on his car.

Iz urgence k dermatologu / From ER to a dermatologist


Baje, da ni alergija na moža. Testirali sicer niso, ampak menda bi se le-ta kazala v kakšnih drugačnih stranskih učinkih. Jim verjamem :) Se hecam. Ne more imeti človek alergije na tako enkratnega človeka.

Obviously there is no allergy to my husband. They are not tested me but apparently it should be showed in some other side effects. I believe them :) I’m just kidding. It’s impossible to have an allergy on such a wonderful man.

Jure me je odpeljal k zdravniku. Namesto, da bi šla skozi glavni vhod bolnice je presodil, da bolje sodim na urgenco (??). Kljub temu, da sem glasno preklinjala, da za na urgenco pa res nisem, se on ni dal. Sem se vdala in za njim capljala kot račka.

Jure took me to the doctor. Instead of going through the main entrance to the hospital he’s considered that is better to go to the ER (??). Despite the fact that I told him that's not so bad that we have to go on the ER he didn’t want to listen to me. I gave up and followed him like a small duck.

Po rešenih formularjih so me takoj sprejeli in ugotovili, da z mano na urgenci nimajo kaj veliko za narediti, razen to, da mi razkužijo obraz!?! Iz urgence pa k dermatologu. Ker sem bila prvič v tej bolnici so naredili še hitri sistematski pregled in vmes ugotovili, da imam visok pritisk. Ja seveda! Bi bilo čudno, če ga ne bi imela, saj sem bila vsa živčna, ker sem želela izvedeti kaj točno mi je in s kakšnim zdravnikom bom imela opravka - Indijec, Egipčan, Iranec, itd. 
Če bi me še kaj dolgo pregledovali bi me brez skrbi lahko zadržali še kakšen dan na opazovanju. Imam par stvari na lagerju, ki pa po mojem mnenju niso tako zelo nujne, da bi za to potrebovala zdravnika.

After filling out forms they immediately accepted me and found that they do not have much to do with me on ER, except that they disinfect my face!?! From ER we go to a dermatologist. Because it was the first time for me in that hospital they did a quick systematic review and simultaneously determine that I have high blood pressure. Of course I have! I would be weird if I didn’t have. I was all nervous, because I wanted to know what exactly is wrong with me and which doctor I will get - Indian, Egyptian, Iranian, etc.
If the revision lasted longer they would definitely keep me for another day on observation. I admit: I have a few things in stock but on my opinion they are not so urgent that it will need doctor.

Rezultat: zdravnik/dermatolog (Egipčan) je vztrajal, da sem dobila alergijo, ker sem uporabila kakšen nov parfum. Ga nisem! Ugotovil ni pa nič novega. Predpisal mi je tablete, kremo in sirup. Za par dni sem dobra!

The result: a doctor/dermatologist (Egyptian) insisted that I had an allergy because I used some new perfume or deodorant. But I didn’t! And he didn’t found anything new. He prescribed me pills, cream and syrup. I’m ok for a few days!

Drobtinice vsakdana #16 / Daily crumbs #16


Spet je naokoli en teden, ko ni bilo od naju duha ali sluha. Oba sva se iz Slovenije srečno vrnila nazaj v deželo, kjer se "cedita med in mleko".

It’s one week around and we didn’t post anything. We both came happily back from Slovenia to the "land flowing with milk and honey". Yeah, and pigs might fly! ;)

In prehaja že kar v navado, da VEDNO ko se vrnem v Dubaj, obvezno zbolim. Tokrat sem se borila kot lev in bila prav ponosna nase, da me ves tisti mraz v Sloveniji in nenormalne klime na avionih niso zdelale.

And it’s definitely becoming a habit that whenever I come back from Slovenia to Dubai I become sick. This time I fought like a lion and I was proud on myself that I didn’t get sick, despite all the cold weather in Slovenia and abnormal low temperatures on airplanes.

No, vsaj do včeraj...

Until yesterday...

V zadnjem letu tukaj nama definitivno ni bilo dolgčas. Zastrupitev s hrano, operacija modrostnega zoba, občasni prehladi zaradi klim, itd. In očitno je spet čas, da greva malo obiskat zdravnika, ker sem trenutno v fazi hude alergijske reakcije. Še ne vemo na točno kaj. Jure pravi, da mogoče na moža :) we'll see!

In the last year we were definitely not bored. Food poisoning, wisdom tooth surgery, occasional colds because of air conditioning, etc. And apparently it is time again to see a doctor because I am currently in the phase of severe allergic reactions. We do not know exactly on what. Jure says that it is possible allergy to husband :) We'll see!
