Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatarended 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!

Tea for Two
Kristi & I attended the American School of Doha's orientation yesterday. It went great, other than the fact that we couldn't figure out how to get into the new high school. As we were looking straight at the school, the guard kept trying to send us in the opposite direction. The only thing that we could figure was that he didn't understand English very well. Well the joke was on us. Remember those cool pics of the school that I posted some time back. You remember, the discussion about the huge chandelier that we could see in the lobby from the road? Well, guess what. That is not the school. That happens to be Al Saad stadium. David just thought that was the school. He was informed of the area that it was in and knew that the school was new, so that building was new & must be the school...right? Wrong. Anywho, the school is new & very nice, but certainly not on the grand scale of Al Asaad! For our last official girls day out before school starts, we ventured off for afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton. A great experience, it was. Kristi & I were totally pampered with dainty sandwiches, scones, various pastries, tea & coffee, while listening to the harp player play "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head". A really odd selection for Doha, as we've never seen rain here. We soaked up the atmosphere & enjoyed every moment of spending David's hard earned money. It's a tough life, but someone's gotta do it.
