Local Flavour

Our trip downtown yesterday was the perfect mix of fun and relaxation. We began the day with lunch at the Villagio Mall, followed by some light shopping, and then a screening of Avatar in the 3-D IMAX theatre.
Then, for dinner, we headed to the souqs. We found a great restaurant where we got to sit outside. Before we ate, we got a hooka, which, after much convincing, Rick agreed to try.

For dinner, I had lentil soup with couscous. The other guys felt adventurous, and all ordered camel in different forms. Aaron's basically looked like sausage links, but he said it was good. I took his word for it.

After dinner, we walked around the souqs for a bit, then decided to head home. On our way there, we stopped to take a brief stroll along the bay. The weather was perfect and there was a great view of the city across the bay. Doha really isn't a bad place at all.
