After a successful 6 week run we finally had the chance to go check the scene out for ourselves. I had been told that it was an all around 'chilled-out' affair, but when we arrived the place was teaming like an African waterhole. Apparently the entire city had turned out to capitalize on their last party weekend before Ramadan and the scene was crazy!
Thousands of people turned out to run around in their bathing suits and alternate between cannonballs and Corona's. MTV's The Grind had nothing on this party.
Our little group managed to carve out an enclave of a few chairs and some highly desired pool-side real estate while the rest of the crowd literally vied for any spot of available pavement. If there were rafters, they'd be swinging from them! The only thing missing was the Discovery channel crew - if you wanted to observe the finer points of primate social interaction this was the place to be!
