An old friend met in a far country is like rain after a drought. (Chinese proverb)
We had a lovely time in Qatar. Our friend, Melissa, was also able to join us with her family from Kuwait.
Qatar is a bidding nation for the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Huge soccer balls can be found all around the country that have the most wonderful quotations on them.
Keep your feet on the ground but let your heart soar as high as it will.
Mine and Renee's boys and husbands went to see a friendly game between Argentina and Brazil in Khalifa Stadium.
Yusef said the game was the best part of the trip but not a one of them took along a camera.
We visited the Museum of Islamic Art
An old souk called Souk Waqif (the standing market) which is around a 100 years old and has recently been restored.
And made a couple of trips to Villagio.
This mall is designed to look like an outdoor shopping area. Blue skies and clouds included.
You can even pretend you are in Venice and take a gondola ride down the canal that is found in the middle of the mall.
We arrived home late last nite. Thankfully we have this day to recoup before heading back to school tomorrow. I hope everyone had a great week. Happy weekend wishes! Friendship blessings, Tammy
