Hello, Doha!

Forgive me dear readers, for I have sinned; it has been 9 months since my last blog post.
So, it looks like ‘blog’ is actually short for ‘back log’. A lot has happened in the last 9 months…no, not that. Where to begin?

It’s exciting times, having upped sticks and moved to Doha, Qatar. A little different from the fast pace, high rise towers and 6-lane highways of Dubai, but it is kind of familiar. As we say in the Middle East, ‘same same, but different’ – a few high rise towers in weird and wonderful shapes, shopping malls (of course!) and construction (a LOT of construction!).

A little quieter (well, apart from the construction noise), but so full of exciting opportunities and lovely people.

In the months twixt Dubai and Doha I spent a lot of time in airports and taxis, of course always with my iPhone camera in hand. Here are some iPhone photos from my travels between Dubai and Doha.
