Jaden's field trip

Last Thursday, I was able to go with Jaden on his class field trip to Katara (a cultural district on the beach). It's fairly new in Doha and it's a beautiful area. We had a list of things to find and take pictures of ... including dove cotes, blue mosaic mosque, golden mosque, amphitheater, sculptures, and dhow boats. It was a bit of a scavenger hunt. Then we got back on the buses and went to a fantastic playground to have a picnic snack and play. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures at the park.  Guess I was having too much fun playing on the toys to take any pictures!

Dove cotes (never heard that word before ...
I had been calling these structures giant bird houses)

Both stops were really fantastic, but I didn't like that we spent so much time on the bus!! We were only at Katara and the park for about 40 minutes each. The remaining 1 1/2 hours were spent on the bus traveling from place to place in the traffic. That part wasn't much fun!
