Hi, everyone! I am little late today as I am in the U.S. and kind of forgot that it was about to be Friday. My days are all off! I guess that is the point of being on vacation. I flew out on Tuesday morning from Doha to Dallas. The flight is 15.5 hours and I watched five movies. I was only able to sleep for a few hours. So far, I haven’t done much, but today I am going to head out to the mall to do some expat stock-up and Christmas shopping. Wish me luck!
