Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Sunrise Tuesday, May 13, 2009

Every sunrise now is poignant – I will not have this kind of view in Doha. I will have palm trees, and sometimes parrots and / or parakeets who migrate through and love the date palms. I will have a yard, and two colored bougainvillea, and pots of home grown basil. I will have a neighborhood where I can walk freely, all by myself and never worry about being harassed, and a pool where women gather and joke around while doing water aerobics. But oh, I will miss these glorious Gulf sunrises!

  4. So you’re going to Qatar?? Isn’t that exciting? I hope you will blog from there because I’d love to know what it is like there! In the mean time, hang in there! Moving is tough. I know all about it. Cheers!

  5. Just thought I’d send you — for your entertainment — this story about my arrival in Armenia in the dead of winter one year. It won’t be ANYTHING like arriving in Doha, rest asured!

  6. You can tell us what’s going on there! I think the pace of change in Qatar is frightening. Good luck with the move,

  7. I read it when I explored your blog, Ms. Footloose! It is an amazing article, and I felt like I arrived in Armenia with you! I hope you get lots of traffic from my blog. 🙂

    Thanks, Bu Yousef. It’s a move, that’s the hard part. I am going back into familiar surroundings, and have friends there, that’s the great part. When we moved to Qatar in 2003, we watched it transform in front of our eyes. It was amazing, and breathtaking. And it goes on!

  8. Earlier this week, A. and I were in that pool you mention and said just what YOU said…”Intlxpatr will not have so many beautiful sunrise photos to post from here”. I’ve enjoyed the chronicle of your mornings in Kuwait.

  9. ….and it continues. I plan to return to the ME in the near future; will be waving at you from not-too-far-away!
    I with you all the best with your new home, getting settled, and while you’ll miss these incredible mornings, prehaps the chirping of your new birdie-friends will entice you to share what is special in your new home, versus what you will miss of the old one.

    Love you *hugs*
