The Grand Prix Experience: Fifth Night Shift

trick_or_treatTRICK OR TREAT?!

I was waiting at the hotel lobby for our shuttle service to pick us up and bring us to the tent field hospital, when this fairly young and pretty lady came to me smiling. I wondered if she was just to ask directions, but her smile was something. I was with the group who were all wearing scrubs.

Lady:  Hey, are you guys up for the halloween party? Nice costume! Nice gimmick! Where is this party happening?

Me:  Uhm… Sorry, but we’re real doctors and nurses. And we’re going to a real hospital…

Lady:  Oh, I’m sorry… it’s halloween aand I thought you guys were going to a hospital-themed costume party…

Haler………

FIFTH NIGHT AT THE TENT

It was another fairly quiet night. I was expecting concert-related cases today coz I thought, Aerosmith was performing at the Concert Arena. But I found out that he’ll only be performing tonight.

Last night was an Arabic band called King of Leonne. I hope I spelled that correctly. But it was a fairly quiet night and none of those collapsing patients coming from the concert came. Hmmm, the audience must’ve behaved. Or was it a classical concert? Sorry, I don’t know the performers and I don’t know their genre.

Whew, that was a tough night shift! Glad to be back at the hotel. Now, if I could just park my Porsche somewhere so I could start having my breakfast.

AT THE RACE TRACK AGAIN

After having our breakfast in the hotel, my friends decided to have a walk at the race tracks again. Still in our scrubs, we took photos of the photographic space on our way to the Yas Marina Circuit, where the first-ever Formula 1 Grand Prix Race in Abu Dhabi will be held this afternoon for the Finals Race. Since we might not be able to make it at the race, a quick snaps-taking would be great before the crowd starts coming in.

My home for 10days at the Yas Island – Raddison Blu Hotel. We were told before taking this job here that we will be housed in a 5-star hotel. I found out from the internet that Raddison Blu is just 4-star! Should I complain? Hahahahaha!
