What a great week! I was busy at work and that made the week go fast. I also met one of my favorite Doha bloggers, finally, PinayFlyingHigh! She writes about food, travel and expat life. We don’t have a large blogging community here, but I haven’t managed to meet everyone in person, so this was a nice change. We had dinner at Nonna Zanon, which neither of us had been to before and we were nervous. It turned out to be good. Not only that, but the service was good and in Doha that can be a rare thing! The next night I went to an archeology lecture about Purple Island in Qatar. If you don’t know about Purple Island, you can read all about it in my post here. I am always surprised how many people who have lived in Qatar for a long time have never been there and some I have never heard of it. It is a beautiful place to visit and is actually one of the few green spots in Qatar. What did you guys get up to this week?
