Home Sweet Doha!
20.08.2011 - 30.06.2013
Well, I have officially made it! Despite visa rejections, shipping problems, and a super long 14 hour flight, I am finally in Doha.
My father and I arrived in Doha at 7pm last night after our 14 hour direct flight. The school personnel met us at the airport along with about 4 other teachers for my school. We were taken by bus to our home in Education City (about a 15 minute drive from the airport). My apartment is FABULOUS. It is about 1600 sq feet comprised of: kitchen, dining room, living room, storage closet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry room and 2 huge bedroom closets. I am in shock that I live here alone. The appliances are nice, beds are comfy, and it is well air-conditioned!! It is about 105 degrees outside and humid but lovely inside. I am about a 5 minute walk from the clubhouse, fitness center, and grocery store. I deem this area wonderful. I am about a 5 minute drive from the school (with no traffic). Our new school building isn't finished yet but is expected to be finished around October/November. In the meantime, we are sharing a building with Qatar Academy, another school under our foundation.
I've got to say, this has been a smooth transition so far! I begin school-related activities tomorrow and school officially starts for the kiddos on September 11. I'm sure it will be an adventure! As for now, no jet lag and no problems! Will definitely keep you updated!
