Here we go.
04/08/2009, beautiful, windy evening. The flight was scheduled for 22:30. It didn’t last longer than 2 hours, but the van that brought us from the Monastir airport to Nabeul stopped 3 times before we were finally delivered in front of our hotel at 2:30 (local time, 3:30 CET).
On our way to the Gate C3. Like Foonie’s one.
The breakfast in the hotel begins at 6 and lasts till 9:30. We didn’t have much time for sleeping. Besides, the girl at the airport gave me the list of passengers to hand it to one girl from the agency at 10:30 am. Why the hell me?!
After the breakfast we came back to our room, and kid immediately wore his shorts and flew towards the swimming pool, and I went to the reception to wait for the girl who was honoured to receive the list of passengers from me.

When I came back to the room I threw myself into bed and slept until 17:30. Kid’s first day was fantastic, considering that I picked him up from the swimming pool at 18:15. The dinner begins at 19, but I wasn’t that hungry because I slept 6 hours.
On the other hand, my son already made friends with some kids. “Hi, what’s your name, I’m Vladimir”
. The boy answers “Boris”
. “Cool. Let’s play”
Unbelievable! But his way of establishing contacts is amazing. And it works very well.
After the diner we went to the beach for a walk.
Hotel – Inside, towards the hotel beach
He immediately stepped into water, and walked down the beach through the water. All of a sudden 2 boys appeared in front of me. One was approximately 8 and the smaller was not older than 6. The older one told me “Bonjour madam”
(in the evening
) and offered his small hand for a handshake.
I accepted that gesture and said “Bonjour”
. Another one did the same, and showed me his lips like he wants a kiss, and I said “No, merci”
When we attempted to get back to the hotel from the beach... WTF?!?!?!?
The gate was locked.
In order to get back to the hotel we had to pass through the part of public beach, followed by the curious eyes of Nabeulians (is this the right word?
) that were sitting on the sand, and to get back to the hotel through the main gate. We went to sleep earlier because we were very tired.
