On Thursday night, we had tickets to see a soccer match in Doha. It was a huge game and sold out to a crowd of nearly 50,000 people! Paris Saint Germain vs. Madrid. I was looking forward to my first soccer game, but it didn't quite go as planned. We got a bit of a late start and parking proved to be a nightmare!!! We finally parked in a residential area a block away from the stadium. The game had already started and just as we walked through the gate of the arena, it started to thunder and lightning and RAIN!!! In Doha??!!! What??!!! Our tickets were in a covered part of the arena, but as there were no one checking tickets once inside the stadium, it was a bit of a free for all with seating and of course the covered area was filled straight away!!! We wandered around the stadium a bit and found some seats hoping the rain would blow over quickly. It didn't. We got soaked!!! Ken was worried about him mom and me (I had come down with a terrible sore throat) and he didn't want us to sit in the cold rain. So we only watched a few minutes before we hiked back to our car in the rain. A bit disappointing, but what can you do??
