One Month Left in Doha; What Do I Have Left to Do?

This past month, I feel like I got so caught up in studying that I forgot the “abroad” part.  In some ways, this is exactly what I came for: to live, not visit, another country, and learn to be comfortable here. By just living here, I can see what real life is like, not the performed life most tourists are treated to. But before I leave, I’d like to step back into my tourist shoes, and fill out my vision of Doha. To make sure I leave no regrets here in Doha, here are the top 7 things I want to do before I fly back to my home in California.

  1. Spend a night in the desert (either at the inland sea or Jebel Jassassiyeh)
  2. Fly to Oman for the weekend
  3. See traditional weavers in Oman
  4. See Cairo with my family
  5. See the pyramids in Egypt
  6. Visit Souq Waqif again
  7. See the Gold, Falcon and Second-Hand Souqs in Doha

I know for sure I will be singing with a wildly diverse (and representative of Doha) cast in Oliver!, writing a research paper on the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty and a research paper on the historical role of European women in the Gulf, and studying like mad for my 3 finals.

And I’ll post about it all here!
