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!

The Party's Over

We packed the girls up this morning and sent them on their way. The last days of their visit included The Pearl, Souq Waqif, and two nights of Qatar ExxonMobil tennis featuring Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. The downer was that Federer bowed in defeat last night and will not compete in this evening's much anticipated final showdown with Nadal. As disappointed as I am, props must be given to Nikolay Davydenko of Russia for his two set victory over Federer. The secondary competition on Thursday night's quarterfinals event appeared to be the battle of the shirtless tennis stars as the females in the crowd were titillated when Nadal and Federer both bared their upper bodies. No doubt a few men swooned, as well :)

After the games, we shared our last meal at Ponderosa*. Haha, David will forever regret tossing that name out as a joke. The girls jumped on it, and next thing you know we were eating buffet food surrounded by a wild wild west theme and Texas flags. I would have said that we felt as though we were back at home, but the clientele was definitely of middle eastern descent (a testament, no doubt, to great American food). After dinner it was off to the souqs for one last hurrah. Thanks for the week, girls. See y'all in May!
