TO CAIRO OR NOT TO CAIRO

Place: 40th floor lounge. Grand Hyatt. One of those comfortable coaches.

Time: 10:30 till 12:30 am, Wednesday.

State: Full after dinner upstairs.

Ambiance: Relaxing except of some loud voice and not a so professional piano player. Smell of cuban cigar, intentionally blown in my face. I love the smell but can't smoke them.

Event: Dinner & Cigar night out.

It is too lavish actually. I made sure to wear my Rolex. ;p.

Well, it is interesting. Not my type of place but it is always good to enjoy the good scenery. Egypt is absolutely beautiful from up top, as Mo. says!

Yeah, it sure is beautiful from up there, but wouldn't wanna stay there forever. Lucky you. Hope you didn't get to pay.

Love your blog index imitation btw, hope your rolex isn't an imitation too ;)

Thanks. Just in case you are hinting, yes I took the idea from you. It is nicer this way. I am following suit your blog.

Yes, my rolex is an imitation for sure.

Well, I paid the tips! :) But yes, I wont like to stay there for too long. All you see is colours, still water, everything so neat but dry. It was worth sitting there for a while.

Sounds fantastic, the only problem is that one can't wear comfortable sneakers on such occasions.

Well, not of concern, wonderer. I was in my jeans and slippers. No fancy dress required, the scenery is enough.

Haal, Did you ever visit a place called Talulah Darling in Montreal? That is what your description reminds me of.

All I can think about while reading this is how great a comfotable couch and some ambiance music would be right now, 20 minutes before finishing my shift...Just hanging, wasting some tine...Fruit and drinks brought to me! Nice!

No. Never been to that place, Z. If it is like that I would love to go. Dinner there? Your treat, right?

Kayla, nothing beats a relaxed chillout after a hectic shift. Fruits sounds cool too. What kind? Kiwi and strawberries? Mango? What! Give us a hint.

Let me think...A fruit salad with as many as possible and some cream on it would be perfect!!!:)

Guys, what's with the word verification trend???It drives me crazy as I always forget to fill it in..:(
