Here are a few photos we took of our home here. The cute American Fox Hound making himself at home with Abbey is Riley (he eats carrots), and he belongs to our neighbors Jesse and Felicity. Check out the shot from my hallway window I took as the sun went down tonight. The spire on the left in the photo is called "Aspire" and it was built, along with beautiful facilities, for the 2006 Asian Games that were held here. The locals call it the torch, and it is very helpful to those of us used to navigating with mountains to the east. Because we are so close to the equator, the sun sets here at about 6:30 PM and comes up at 5:30 AM. In the photo you can also see the big construction project they are working on next to our complex. There is a housing shortage in Doha, and to rent a two bedroom villa it is about $5000. After I took this photo I went to turn on the hallway lights and noticed a thick layer of sand had blown in through the small spaces where the window panels come together and had settled on top of the light switch box. That is one of the fun challenges of the desert life.
