One of those that was more like i was the lead character in an action movie rather than a dream.
The part i remember most clearly was jumping between two moving trains....oh yeah and my gorgeously hot 'love intrest/sidekick'. I like how i gave myself a good looking sidekick to help me out on my adventure.
Perhaps my sub-concious is trying to spice up my life because i've got into a very boring daily routine that requires watching a lot of tv....
Now if only I looked a bit more like Angelina Jolie in my dreams......
Walking down the streets of Cairo is not an easy feat for a blonde
haired, blue eyed foreigner like myself.
Lets just say i can no longer walk around incognito.
Every Tom, Dick and Harry that i pass by has something to say to me, normally the three following phrases,
Welcome To Cairo
Where you from?
Whats you name?
Most of the time it doesnt bother me, its a cultural thing,
its what they say when a foreigner walks by,
occasionally its a little but more of a heckle and they take it a it further, in which case i'm normally a bit rude and abrupt and they then leave me alone.
Yesterday i was being rude and abrupt to a group of guys who had
i had to pass through on my way to work.
I grunted and passed without any further ado,
and the another guy came up to me and said, 'hey, hows it going?'
to whom i gave what can only be described as a Snarl....
(i was in a particularly bad mood after having
unsuccessfully trying to extract money from various ATM's).
He seemed slightly taken aback but said no more and kept on walking.
That was when i realised that he was walking in the same direction as me....yes.....he was definitely walking into the Opera House....oh dear, had i just offended one of my new colleagues? I haven't really got names and faces down yet.
And yes, in rehearsal later on, my normal dancer partner
I just finished re-reading one of my favourite books.
Watership Down by Richard Adams
I love re-reading my favourite books,
it's like a good recommendation that you know wont disappoint.
So when i was packing my suitcase to come here i popped in a couple of my favourites as i dont know how long its going to take me to find an english library/cheap bookshop here an i didn't want to be stuck with books that were rotten.
If you haven't heard of Watership Down its the story of a bunch of rabbits who leave their warren to find a new one.
It follows their adventures and struggles to survive.
What's so great about this book though is the characterisation of the rabbits, not only does Adams make you feel like he really knows
what its like to be a rabbit but each rabbit has such distinct personality
and humanness to them as well.
I'll admit that I cried at the epilogue whilst reading it last night.
Not because it was particularly sad,
but because it was simply beautiful.
I tired to remember if i cried last time i read it,
