Syria vs. Qatar?


Ok, so Qatar is on my roster now.  I don’t know which is better between Syria and Qatar.

I think Syria would be fun and historical and blah, blah, blah.  But Where are the black people? (oh that’s right, I might just be it…lol).  I don’t think it would send me to nervous breakdown like Morocco did, but I think it would be an adjustment on top of getting used to food, turkish toilets, dress and language 24×7, but I don’t know.

Khaleeji Arabs have a reputation for being mad grimy to non-citizens, so I’m a bit afraid.  ON the other hand, there are maaad people there from all over the world, and experiencing being an ex-pat and an African with other Africans sounds comforting and really appealing.  The idea of Gulf sounds fun, bump the ancient architecture!  Give me air conditioning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…lol.

Well only time will tell, it all depends on funding, and if the relationship between the US and Syria gets better or worse.

  1. Hey salaam,
    lol, you’re funny. my friend looks proper Somali. I haven’t spoken to her since she went to study in Syria but I can give you her email, she’s mad cool and she has this ‘thing’ for America and Americans [a British obsession] so y’all will bond. So let me know and I cand send you her email.
    I didn’t know Qatar was a hot spot for seeking knowledge [wait I’m assuming that’s your purpose right?]. I’m sure there are more foreigners, not sure about Blacks [although my Nubian friend lives and works there but she blends in as an Arab], but racism will still be there, you can count on that.
    Most of the Blacks I know who went to get Islamic knowledge in the Middle East went to Syria so I guess that’s the best choice.
    I SO wish I could do the same man…
