Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today was just grand…. The weather was just perfect. I spent the day reading poolside and visiting with friends. The Captain put out a new change to the itinerary today. We will now spend two nights in Dubai, arrive 24 March and depart 26 March; the 27th we will be in Muscat, Oman; the 29th will be in Salalah, Oman; April 3rd will be Aqaba, Jordan and finally the 6th of April will be Ashdod, Israel. The changes of a few days ago are replaced by these…. As I previously mentioned, I will be leaving for Varanasi India tomorrow. I will be back and catch up the blog posts on the 20th (here).
