The time of our lives.

I had an epiphany this afternoon. It wasn't a particularly extraordinary afternoon; it was in fact one of those mundane, lowly ones. I was driving home after a gruelling  8 hour ER shift and the traffic was uncommonly horrendous. I had to wait full hog at every one of the nine, painfully long traffic signals... Continue Reading →

Of life, love and laughter.

It is all about the little things. Things that shouldn't matter but do. A handsome, older gentleman smiles at the rearview and thanks you profusely for letting him pass in maddening traffic when everyone else just pushed through. It doesn't matter, but you suddenly believe that the embers of decency and chivalry are yet to completely... Continue Reading →

Winds of change and change of winds.

Boy oh boy is Doha awake at midnight today! A there-one-minute-gone-the-next shower the previous night; a few degrees drop in temperature, a cool ocean breeze and the eve of the weekend- the perfect recipe for the folks of Doha to rush out onto the roads at night apparently.

The day Dr J left Doha, the city seemed to be in a glum mood. Dark and threatening to pour. Alas, no such thing transpired. J left Doha... Continue Reading →

The parting…

Eerily prophetic bed cover!   Off to the airport...   The "New Doha International Airport" - NDIA/ Hamad International Airport - HIA   Had absolutely NO time to wander about the "airport- mall" and duty free outlets.   The minimalistic but spotlessly clean changing rooms...   Looking for the boarding gate,...

Lil’ Z heads to Al Ghariyah!

Morning lovely people! It's been a long time. A long HIATUS- see I have improved my VOCABULARY. All big words. Mama reads to me. I cannot speak yet, but I do think about them in my head! We have been keeping very busy. The road trips are few and far between. We have so many... Continue Reading →
