Ok so It’s been a month since I’ve been here and I can the one activity that I do the most is eat. Sooo sad… when we go out, it’s usually for lunch or dinner somewhere, there isn’t much else to do. I am visiting the local landmarks slowly, seeing as how I have 9 months and don’t want to get bored with everything too fast.
So far I have only been to Souq Waqif which is a government-built- manufactured version of the traditional open air market. It’s hilarious because the place in air-conditioned, offers a bunch of random objects from abayas to cheap trinkets. But I will be going to the Islamic history Museum either this week or the next.
Next week, or this week rather is a Halloween party, I’m not much of a Halloween person back home, but I am looking forward to being in an American setting where the lines between male and female, appropriate and inappropriate are not so darn wide. A friend and I are going as a Qatar woman and her maid (oh that needs a post all by itself the indentured servitude/slavery that they have going on here, makes me sick to my stomach 😦 I hope we can pull it off.
oh, oh. I’m going to a tennis match! Hopefull one with either Venus or Serena Willaims, something I probably wouldn’t do at home. I do hope its fun/I get some decent celebrity pictures out of it.
Oh, how exciting life is!..not!…lol…
