I gave up my weekend to head to a military conference in Doha, Qatar. That’s a LONG flight. I appreciated being on a non-stop in terms of not worrying about connections and lost bags, but I think next time I’ll seek a connecting route so I can break up the 13 hour flight. My tailbone is still aching! I also seem to have picked up some sinusitis, so have spent today at home being slothful as opposed to the planned day off getting some packing done for the coming moves up to PA and into a smaller place here.
Qatar is a rich country that welcomes us. (It says so right on their water tower!) They are sitting on an extremely large natural gas reserve and their population average income is somewhere around $150K per capita. Of course, they have many guest workers who make far less. Other than natural gas, there isn’t a lot there. They are working to build lots of things including reclaiming land to extend their acreage. They do have lots of sand.
You may be looking for knitting content as there was none in my last post. I’m here to serve. Here I am working on my latest socks outside of my lodging…no, I didn’t add fill light to the photo. It was just that bright. Sunglasses are a must. Also, in the event of any big mistakes, you will be glad to know that they stock “Rip It” power drink at the dining facility. Thoughtful of them, don’t you think?
