Doha day one.
On our first morning in Doha while we were trying to adjust to our many time changes and lingering effects of jet lag, my husband took us to one of the downtown shopping malls. While we sat and stared out of the car window at the pictures all around us it was apparent that we had both got it all wrong! In the mind of our 14 year old we had lovingly forced him to leave all of his friends in Australia, side-step his grandparents in the USA to live in a boring desert town with camels and rules. Now we were both seeing that we had instead come to a land of stark contrasts and intrigue.
