Wow, it has been awhile since I have blogged – where has September gone? Time just seems to fly here in Doha, and we have been pretty busy so I have not had time to update!
I am going to try and post about a few things we have done over the past month! So during the month of Ramadan, Muslims break their fast at a meal called Iftar, right after sundown. Later on in the evening (sometimes as late as 10 or 11), they will have a Suhoor, which is more feasting since they fast all day.
We were invited to a faculty dinner at the Ritz Carlton’s Lagoon Bay restaurant for a Suhoor. What an amazing dinner! The Ritz had a huge buffet with a pasta station, hot foods, salads, bread station, juice station, and of course a dessert station! We had the privilege of sitting with the Dean, his wife and many of our new friends. The dinner is a welcome dinner for all faculty, so lots of Dave’s colleagues were there. It was a lovely dinner, and we will be looking forward to next year’s!
