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!

16 Candles Plus a Few

David's "50th" birthday celebratory dinner choice...none other than Bennigan's. He feels he's at home with family when there. He told me he wouldn't celebrate it anywhere else, so Bennigan's it was. Our shared buffalo chicken sandwich turned into a romantic candlelit dinner for two as we lost electricity halfway through our meal. Within a matter of minutes the staff had candles in place at every table. They didn't miss a beat and the patrons didn't seem bothered by the spontaneous added ambiance. David's birthday dessert was ushered in by the entire staff singing their own rendition of Happy Birthday. The manager informed David that they would NEVER forget "sir's" birthday, as they were celebrating Bennigan's ninth anniversary in Doha on that very day. We did get electricity back, only to lose it again after the candles were collected. They swiftly passed them out, again, and finally we did get the power back on with no more interruptions. It was a great evening shared with some of our favorite people.

P.S. David sends his thanks to all that left birthday greetings and also for the phone calls that he received!
