Day One in Doha, Qatar

Posted by GailSidonieSobat on March 24, 2013 in General Blabbity Blab |

The call to prayer wakes me.  I love the call to prayer in its haunting beauty.  My Western ears no longer let me sleep through the 4:20 am muezzin’s chant as they once did when I lived in Istanbul.  Now the birds are singing, and they are telling me, “Sleep no more.”  It’s quite a chorus outside my window.

Today I visit students at Qatar Academy.  Very exciting!

I’m so lucky to be visiting my friends, Kevin, Janice, Livvy and Zach (and their cat Spiral).  Poor Geoff and Desi – stuck at home.
