So Sandy is here and life is great. She arrived yesterday afternoon. The minute I saw her face at the airport I knew she just had a fight. What happened was that she got us a bottle of wine from duty free but Qatar customs refused to let her enter the country with the bottle of wine. She didn’t know the rule of no-alcohol-entry in Doha. So what happened came both as a shock and a pisser. She got over it eventually.

From the airport we went directly to Johnny Rockets for a quick lunch then we went back to the house to chill. After that we went to the Corniche, along the sea shore to see a photo exhibition. Then we followed that up with dinner at a Mexican restaurant at the Marriott called Salsa.

The plan today is shopping, shopping and more shopping. We are planning to take her to the major malls here: City Centre, Landmark and the Mall. We might go to the movies afterwards if she finishes her shopping early, which, knowing Sandy, I doubt;-)
