Assalaam Alaikum!

January 18, 2010

Today we spend the day busting out work in our individual topic areas and were busy digging into Qatari cultural and how it intertwines with university life. Tomorrow we’ll continue our discussions and work on the topics and Wednesday we’ll present our findings during a large symposium.

After our session today we headed back to the Souq for dinner and more shopping. The other day when we went we were a little overwhelmed and tired to haggle and search for a good deal – but today we got some goooood stuff! I’ll keep that a surprise :). Since I’ve been locked in a conference room all day, I thought I would just post some pictures I haven’t shared yet for you to view!

Also, Dad, the weather is super nice – I can’t tell you the degrees, well ok I just Googled it and it’s around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. We spend most of our time in the AC but it’s very comfortable outside and always sunny. Some  mornings it’s a little foggy since we are so close to the water, but most of the time the sun is shining. In the summer though, with humidity they say it can feel like 140 degrees! One school we visited even gave us a branded car sun shade as a gift! haha.

Onto the photos! p.s. The title of this post is used as a greeting and roughly means, peace be upon you or good blessings for you. You’re supposed to reply, Wa Alaikum Assalaam or and peace be upon you as well.
