Last Day in Qatar
My friend Don and I signed up for the water sports day and had a blast. We rode the dhow as shown. 100 years ago they were sail powered and used for fishing and pearl diving. This had a diesel engine but had the old fashioned wooden rudder. We rode over to a low island across from the Doha skyline and anchored. We rode jetskis, swam and went tubing. They had a charcoal grill on the dhow and cooked up a great lunch as well. Great day yesterday.
Today, 5 hour plane ride and back in Afghanistan. Should be less than 2 months to go.
