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!

Some Like it Hot

In 1987, CPSC helped develop requirements for temperature controls to make sure that spa water temperatures never exceed 104 degrees Fahrenheit.


...most people like a shower temperature slightly warmer than body temperature, about 105ºF or 40ºC.

And here, my friends, is the cold water temp in my villa...

Yes, that reads 106° (41C)

Which means...

No taking of cold showers
No washing your delicates in cold water
No running to the tap for cold water when burning yourself

Oh, the joys of a Doha Summer...I will miss you dearly :(
