Moroccan bath and dolphin watching May 18, 2007Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Bahrain, Beirut, Culture, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture, Sweden.
My day at Dessange was bliss aha hm hmm. First I had a Moroccan bath with steam sauna, scrub and I don’t know what was going on. Made me sleepy. Then I went on to a massage and a facial. I must say the head massage was the nicest part of this even if it wasn’t as long as I would have preferred cus I luuuv head massage. I could have one all day and every day.
Anyway, after that I went into the salon and had a pedicure while eating reaaaallly nice sandwiches from a place called Cafe Loulou (I think that’s how it’s spelled). Now that place I have to visit. The sandwiches were to die for. Little nice square buns with halloumi and other goodies that I, who was hungry and had only eaten a banana for breakfast quickly ate (I am a disgrace I know). Finished off with a manicure, hair treatment with oils and more head massage and hmm I don’t know what it was and a blow dry. Felt pretty nice afterwards.
Of all the things I did I must say the Moroccan bath was the best. The other treatments were good too but the Moroccan bath was great.
Today we are off to a boat for some dolphin watching. I really didn’t know there were dolphins in the Gulf (I dare not say Persian Gulf nor Arabian- even if I always thought it is the Persian Gulf) so that’s all news to me. I really hope we will see some dolphins…
I was thinking yesterday that in Sweden and in many other countries we wear black when we mourn. In Lebanon they were black and white. In Saudi they wear black and white every day of the year. What do they wear outside to show they mourn the loss of a loved one?
