I have so much to catch up from this week, but I want to include all the pics and that is going to take some editing. However, today I got another one of those funny shots that just crack me up, and could not wait to share it.

This photo was taken at the Four Seasons Doha where Mandy, Gabi and I had lunch on the beach. You can imagine how ritzy this place is--I have fun just watching the cars pull up at the valet station! Anyway, this man in traditional dress sat near us. And drank beer. Tell me that is not a conflict in practice--he is conservative enough to dress traditionally, but clearly disregards an important feature of the Muslim faith.
I have had so much fun catching these idiosyncracies during this trip. I guess it just highlights how similar all people are all over the world---picking and choosing which parts of our faith we choose to follow.
