Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Villagio Mall

Can you handle, yet, one more mall! We drove out to Villagio Mall today. Now this is a cool mall. There is a canal running through the mall with gondolas. You heard me. These people really know how to market. Check out the ceilings in this place. You feel like you are vacationing while sitting in the mall. It was unbelievable. We got there about 11:00 this morning, not realizing that today (Friday) is their holy day. None of the stores were open, but there were people strolling all over the mall just window shopping. We just joined in & walked around until lunch time. We had Italian at Pizza Express. That's the girls posing with our waiter & one of the chefs. And of course, you guessed it, we topped off our lunch with dessert & coffee at another cafe in the mall. The pic of David is him loading his espresso (double shot, no less) with milk. Uh, is that politically correct? We gave him a hard time, of course. Another case of male testosterone gone awry. We absolutely adore you dear. We wouldn't have you any other way! (And we wouldn't be having our Qatari Adventures, either!) That's it, a pretty low key day. Laid out at the pool for a while & just relaxed this evening. Peace out.

P.S. For those of you who might not know, you can click on the pics to enlarge them. :)


  1. I'm glad that everything is going great. I've enjoyed reading the blog. Keep it up!

  2. That mall looks like the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Same concept. Bellagio . . . Villagio . . . sounds similar. :-) Fran


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
