This will be short as it was just a routine, busy busy work day.
Tomorrow, Eric and I go to look at some rock slopes in Fujairah because we're geologists and geologists like rocks! Then we are staying at this nice resort on the ocean, where I plan to have my first drink in almost 4 weeks to celebrate getting yet another year older. Today's taxi driver was nice - he asked me if I had a husband to which I said no. "Yes, Americans they get married later, yes? In Pakistan, we are married by 20." Well, that was a long time ago. Yep, feeling old...
It has been more or less confirmed that I will be spending my summer working in Qatar. I hope it is not as bad as I fear (work wise only), and as long as I am definitely coming back, I can handle anything for a couple of months. I hope.
Today for lunch Zenah brought her mom's lasagna (yum!), I brought my leftover Arabic bread with hummus which was quite good, and Ivan brought chicken with green peppers from his wife. Definitely a good lunch. I will miss Ivan's wife's cooking as he will be spending the next couple of weeks in Qatar; I will probably get there just as he is leaving.
Anyway, must get a good night's sleep tonight! I warned Eric that I am going to be a little camera happy on this trip... :) So, in a day or two, you guys will have pictures galore!
