It was relaxing through the backwater with its network of channels, etc., but after the two-hour ride on the bus back to our hotel, we were worn out! Bill had finally succumbed to the chest cold and cough that had plagued Sue-On others in our party. That, along with some motion-sickness, put him in bed for most of the afternoon. 

Since we'd had a month of sightseeing we decided to take a room to relax in as we wouldn't leave for the airport until midnight. Quite a few were leaving a few hours earlier than us for their flights back to England, USA, and others onto holidays elsewhere. Five of us took a van at midnight for our 4 am flights. Barlzae was on the same flight as us for Dubai so we had a good visit at the airport. We planned to have our luggage checked through to Toronto so we wouldn't have to worry about it during our long stopover in Dubai.
