Doha Chronicles

Posted on: June 14, 2009

Haaaaaatemmmmmmm, I realized I should start my blog post the same way I start my conversations the team meetings, my way of expressing how much I miss Hatem ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s another summer in Doha, one of the hottest in the recent past this time, and the only answer I have to the question “What’s new?” is “Our new building!”. Although the number of students I see on a daily basis has gone down to about 20, there is a decent amount of activity thanks to Northwestern moving in. One can also see some new faces, the incoming freshmen, coming to campus to complete their placement tests. Surprisingly, the food court is still decently populated, thamks to the lack of good vendors in the other buildings ๐Ÿ˜‰ GO CMU!

Outside the CMU building, the Student Center and Georgetown University buildings are coming up faster than ever (its Qatar and construction, remember), and the number of roads under-construction has gone up considerably. There is a new 4-way interchange coming up right outside Education City and the Convention Center construction is at its fastest as well. It feels like Education City is not out of graduation fever yet. The posters of graduating students are still up and bright in the night light and the humungus billboard right outside the campus shines brighter than ever.

That’s all from Doha for the time being, an update coming your way as soon as something interesting happens ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s a word!
