Another Doha post for subapooh et al. [Jun. 18th, 2010|08:26 pm]

Yesterday, I ditched antivert again to go to Doha and see friends. (He was very understanding about it.) Then, while I was out with said friends, I ran into another friend who lives in Dubai - in the elevator of the W Hotel! I didn't even know he was going. It was an "EVERYTHING IS A COINCIDENCE / THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A COINCIDENCE" moment. Good times.


Sometimes, it almost does.


Doha has weird buildings. Most of them are not shown. Next time I'll photograph them for you (and I'm looking at you, dubaiwalla).


This is my friend, Amit, playing with a manual typewriter that was in our other friend's outrageous (honeymoon?) suite in the W.


In the morning, we went to the Ritz Carlton.


For bubbly brunch!


OH HEY! IT'S nativeinformant!

mmmm! Ritz-Carleton brunch! Chris took me to the one in Half Moon Bay and we really enjoyed the brunch. I want to go back some day when I'm not pregnant and don't have all sorts of food/drink restrictions!

Ooh, yeah! Go back when you're not pregnant! I'm vegetarian, but everybody seems to go to this brunch for the sushi. :-)

Yes, EXACTLY the sushi! Are you strict vegetarian or do you permit fish in your diet (lacto-ovo-pesce vegetarian?)

I stopped eating fish about six months ago, for animal loving reasons and environmental reasons. Fish delicious, though. Sushi is delicious. I'm thinking that starting next year, I'll eat sushi once a year - on my birthday. :)

It wasn't easy, today, standing over a gorgeous buffet of all-you-can-eat sushi! I had the veggie sushi. Nice, but just not the same! Really just a vehicle for wasabi!

PEEKTURS of DOHA

I like the slanty buildings and I like the shrubs with the driver-seat-sight-line cutouts.
