Starsky and Hutch

Before Lucy and I left for Doha, we had watched the new Starsky & Hutch movie. The best part, I think .... was at the end when they are in disguise and the one fella puts on a voice and says:

"Do it. ..... Do it."

Well, throughout the past 72 hours or so, we've amused ourselves to no end saying just that. Do it.
So here we are now. All 2.4 of us. Living in what will now be our home for no more then 100 days. Work will start in about 7 hours from now ... and of course, I can't sleep. Snorebert can.

The goal over the next few weeks is fairly simple. Residence Permit, Drivers Licenses, Hospital registration for bean ... buy a few cars and find a permanent place to live. Easy, eh?

Thankfully it hasn't been too hot the past few days. I think today it got up to 43C ... there have been sandstorms and when we flew in on Friday evening, there was next to no visibility. As someone commented to me on facebook, here they call it 'fog'. Suppose because they've never seen actual fog and the effect that is happening is fog-like. Anyways...

A few things I've noticed. Here and in the hotel I was at a few weeks ago in Doha ... the toilet paper isn't normal 'western' size. the squares are smaller ...

translations to english in menus and magazines are funny. we could have ordered "tree scoops of ice cream" for desert tonight.

ya man
