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!

Back in the USA

Back in the good ole US of A for a rainy 4th of July. I haven't seen rain since I left the states. David's been gone for over 2 months & he hasn't seen rain either. Anyway, we're back & still in tact. Thankfully, we had very uneventful plane rides. I talked with David this morning & he did get his residence permit & is scheduled to fly in on Friday. Before I sign off for the summer, I wanted to share with you a video of one of our first roundabout experiences without David. David scares the he__ out of me! Trust me, it's a lot less scary when you are the one in control.

Coming Home

Our trip is coming to a close. We have to head to the airport in just a few short hours. We're set to leave Doha at 12:30 a.m. with a stop in Frankfurt, Germany (a shout out to Jen, who's in the area!) & then on to Houston arriving at 1:40pm. Our ready & able ride is meeting us at the airport...thanks, Avis....er, Regina!! We're excited to come home, but maybe even more excited to return to Doha. So much more to discover, since Kristi & I have learned to navigate the roundabouts as a team, which means "we own this town, now"! David couldn't believe all the places we went to today on our own. It really was an adventure. Looking forward to more in the future. Thanks for all your wonderful comments & emails. They really were the highlights of my days. All of my blog junkies have an open invitation to visit. Our hotel/guest room is at your disposal with all the trimmings seen at your local Holiday Inn. You know the curtains, bedspreads & carpet I'm talking about. Yep, that's Qatar's idea of modern living...American hotels. Signing off with all our love. See y'all soon!

Don't Despair!!

I'm back! Major Internet problems...sorry for the interruption. We actually have been "piggybacking" off someone else's wireless Internet in the compound while we've been waiting for ours to be connected. We lost their connection, which has made us very disconnected from society. We have rediscovered dial up & it's just as we remembered it...slow. We're lucky to have it though, as we wait for our DSL. QR 6 per hour...I think we can handle it, since Kristi & I are flying out tonight anyway. It's our last day & David left us the car. Yesterday was our first driving experience. What a riot. I'll post the video when I don't have to use dial up, (would take way too long). I know this was short & sweet, but just wanted to let everyone know that we're still alive & kicking. We're off on our last adventure for this time around...will try & post again tonight with more info.
