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!

It's the simple things in Doha that sometimes make it such a pleasurable place to live. I stopped at our little grocery in the complex the other evening for some milk. (I refrain from using the word compound as one pictures guards with Uzis walking the perimeter, which I'll inform you that we no longer have. Rumors were that they didn't really have any bullets, but they had my respect all the same, well, except the one that wore flip flops. I always wondered how a chase scene would play out.) Anyhoo, the clerk was all apologetic that he didn't have my usual order of skim milk, but not to fear, the milk truck would be coming early the next day. Lo and behold I open my door to a ringing doorbell the next morning to find my favorite little grocer with "fresh milk" in hand. I mean, you gotta love it.
