How are you and your family? hope your all enjoying your time back home. I saw your latest blog post about you leaving early next year. I had to re-read it as I was initially in disbelief and I immediately felt a pang of sadness when I realized that I hadn't misunderstood your words. I guess I got so used to reading your blog I felt like your were a permanent fixture of Qatar, despite you blogging about things from a distinctly expat perspective, giving me a different insight into my country, which I enjoyed immensely as I would come back for more each day. I have to agree with one of the commentators on your blog, you have been such a great ambassador for your country and you have really embraced Qatari culture with all it has to offer- good and bad- and although we are all entitled to our own opinions, I always found your posts thoughtful, respectful, positive and funny! You always wrote with such flair and vivacity that I found refreshing and enjoyable. I 'd like to ask you if you would like to get together sometime after your back, since I always wanted to but for some inexplicable reason haven't, and consequently feeling guilty for not doing so sooner! lol perhaps we can get together for coffee or dinner or shisha or all of the above?? :P I'm open to suggestions!
I hope I was able to convey my appreciation and admiration for you and your blog, and although your leaving Qatar, I am grateful to you for allowing me as a reader to have a glimpse into your world and seeing Qatar through your eyes.
Thank you and Warmest Regards,
It was real, it was fun, it was real fun
