So settling in Qatar and adjusting to being a working mom has been a little tricky. Roger has been fighting sinus issues and the kids have been busy. But we are finally getting the swing of things again and I thought I would dust off the neglected blog to give friends and family a peak at what we are up to.
First off is the Singing Sand Dunes. We went with friends for a Christmas gathering. It was amazing. Hiking up the sand dunes made me feel so out of shape! When you slide down, the sand starts humming as it rubs against itself, hence the "singing" part. We just missed a camel caravan that passed by. Desert sunsets are amazing!
Next, Evelyn pennyboarding around the Ceremonial Gates in Education City. The number one thing I love about Doha is all the unique and beautiful architecture. This is a perfect example of understated, modern Middle Eastern design. The Ceremonial Gates are just down the road from our schools and is where they hold events like graduation. It looks across a grass mall towards the Qatar National Convention Center, which incorporates tree shapes into its design. I'll have to take a picture of that next and my favorite zig zag buildings.
Evelyn is an ace pennyboarder after a few crashes that left her with skinned knees, shins, ankles, elbows, etc. She is pretty tough!
This was amazing, a National Day parade we caught in the souk earlier this week. I feel so lucky to get a glimpse of another culture from time to time.
