Travelling again, in Saudi now after a 26 hour journey..for a job I don’t have, yeah I’m jobless remember 😛
15 hour transit in Dubai, erg….at least they gave me a hotel so I could pass out for a few hours, they didn’t feed me though…which is bad! Well some people might say it’s good *looks at his waistline*
At first there was no hotel as promised, then finally found someone who knew what they were talking about and managed to get a room.
Then finally got on a flight to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia..that’s where I am now.
I already had a pre-approved business visa in my passport when I arrived, so I thought all would be smooth…
But no, a bunch of us ended up in a dingy smokey little office wondering what the hell was happening, apparently there was a problem with the ‘system’.
It was like something from a movie, the guy at the desk was throwing passports around, scowling and banging the desk.
I thought…that was not a good place to be.
Nice airport, but horrible immigration, it took forever, there was no order in the queues and the immigration officers made the Malaysian bunch seem polite.
Eventually got through, then there was no hotel pick-up as promised. I paid myself for an over-priced taxi to some 2 star dump near the partners office.
No Internet, No Iron available to guests..
Not sure what’s happening in Saudi now but every hotel is fully booked, I should be shifting to a half decent place tonight.
Sick like a dog too, sore throat, glands up…for once I can safely say, life sucks!
