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!

In the Words of Paul Simon

Okay, some of you guys out there think I have entirely too much time on my hands. Adding music, well that's just the icing on the cake for me. Pics, music, and Doha...what more could one want? Well, I'll tell you what. My Nikon has bit the dust. I'm in mourning today, as I get a "lens error" every time I turn on my camera. Thus, no pictures. All the help forums on this error have been no help. One even suggested beating my camera against the wall, that's what worked for him. Well, I don't know what he paid for his camera, but I can't bring myself to do that. I actually found a "factory authorized Nikon repair shop" in Doha (believe it or not), but my husband "missed the bus" this morning, so I don't have a car. Rumor has it though that it's quite expensive to fix this problem and sometimes just not worth it. I'll reserve judgment on that. Not having my camera while hitting the streets of Doha is like a missing limb for me. My motto has always been, have camera, will travel. As Paul Simon said, "I've gotta a Nikon camera. I love to take photagraphs, so mama don't take my Kodachrome away :(

P.S. If you feel like the song you're hearing doesn't match the blog you're reading, click on your refresh button (or control F5). You can always click on the = sign to stop the music or the Arrow to play it. Another option is to click on the title of the blog you want to read in the left hand column entitled blog archives. It will bring up just that entry and will play the correct music.


  1. Glad that Nikon started working for you again! :) I misssss you!

  2. Kayla, I must have missed something there. I don't see anything about the Nikon working again.

  3. Kayla has the latest scoop. After posting my blog,I turned on my camera for the 200th time & the lens came out wit no lens error. Keep your fingers crossed!


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