I'm off to see in the inlaws on the 12th and really anxious about it. I can't speak much arabic, they can't speak any English and they call me the 'princess' which my husband finds rather amusing but i suspect is not exactly a compliment!! They live near the desert in 2 rooms and I can't hack the lack of hot water or indoor plumbing so I insist on staying in a hotel. Husband doesn't mind except that his cousin's wife says that its ok to stay there because it makes him happy!!! AHHHHHH. I feel guilty but can't stand it. Rant over, will enjoy lying by the pool!
