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.
