I'm here in Doha. The city is very nice, though the roundabouts (traffic circles) are scary. I'm very glad I'm not driving. We saw the Corniche Pearl, went to a horse farm and saw a swimming horse.

The Sheraton is very nice. They even delivered our luggage to our rooms. I've never stayed in such a posh hotel: fresh fruit in the rooms, shower and tub, 2 flat plasma tvs, porch on the ocean, very comfy beds, etc etc etc.

The campus is nice. Small, but they're growing...

Gave Sarris chocolate bars to all the CS students today. Had a heart attack: one asked me if chocolate liquor had any alcohol in it. It doesn't, but it was just harrowing to have that asked! Didn't think about that.

Breakfast had veal bacon, speaking of the dietary restrictions.

That's all I have for you. Check out the pics, and enjoy!

Traffic circles are one of the most terrifying parts of the world outside of the US. I know we have some here, but they don't count. They're freaking SCARY.

Anyway, I told you once and I'll tell you again: I want a swimming arabian pony. You can probably fit one in your bag if you try.
