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!

Saturday Walking Continues
We'll continue the Saturday Corniche walking series, even though it'salready Tuesday (toomany birthdays this weekend!). David and I set out earlier this time by fifteen minutes. Ok, we're still not there, but eventually we'll get out the door before 11:00 am and the temp is 95. It was unusually cloudy that morning with just a little breakthrough sunshine. We started in the middle of the corniche and headed in the opposite direction this time. Surprisingly, the corniche walkers were at a minimum. We passed only a handful on our nearly four mile trek. I guess they are a little brighter than us and are waiting for cooler weather.We did runacrossa few fishermen, again, trying their luck. This guy reeled in a doozie with his bare hands and was proud to show it off for me. No water bottle for a pole needed this time. I really thought it was just his bait, but found out it was his prize catch. Wow. Look hard and you will see it! The bait of choice was flat bread. The building in the water is the new Islamic Museum that is scheduled to open in December. And of course,that's yours truly conquering the clam shell. We pass it often and there are always people posing in front of it for the camera. I thought I'd go ahead and take my turn at it. While I was at it, I made a self portrait of me and the clouds for posterity.Until next time...blogfully yours, Syb.
