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!

Where Art Thou Vancouver?
There are no Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics in sight in Doha. Back in October 2008 I calendared this event to make sure I wouldn't be caught sleeping. I had just had the pleasure of meeting an Austrian Olympic Gold Medalist, Andreas Kofler, on a train from Innsbruck to Vienna to top off an already spectacular Austrian getaway. He told us he planned to be in Vancouver in 2010 for the ski jumping events barring any injuries or misfortunes, and I held him to his word. Unfortunately, between our Orbits and Mozaic cable services, I have yet to find any hint of Olympic coverage on the gazillion sports channels offered between them. If anyone out there knows something I don't, speak now or forever hold your peace. The first of the ski jumping is tonight, so I guess I'll have to rely on Internet surfing and Twitter for coverage. Not quite like seeing it live and up close on the tube. Good Luck Andreas!
