Yesterday was a pretty laid back day, meaning that I did absolutely nothing all day long. I have to admit, having a television in the hotel room and being able to watch Animal Planet, makes me not want to leave the room! I watched Animal Planet for like four straight hours yesterday and didn't even realize that much time had passed. (This is why we don't have satellite at home, I'd obviously never get anything done, darn you Animal Planet, I love you.)
So today I vow to get out and go to the gym. (that is if my burnt body allows me to move.) Maybe they will have Animal Planet on TV in the gym??? ;)
Last night Jon, Damon and I went to an Italian restaurant in the hotel by the name of Italian Job. (I wonder where they got that name.) It was actually very good food. I had chicken stuffed ravioli with a white wine cream sauce and mushrooms. For dessert Jon and I split Tiramisu, my favorite dessert on the planet. Yum!
After dinner we went to a piano bar in another wing of the hotel where we had a couple of drinks and listened to the music. At one point they played the song from "Music and Lyrics," that Drew and Hugh wrote in the movie, "A Way Back into Love." They had wonderful voices, but it was an odd choice of song if you ask me. (Don't get me wrong, I sang along.)
Since the guys had to get up early we headed back to the hotel to catch some Zzzzz's.
Tonight we are definitely going to the Souk. Caroline (Jon's co-worker) has never been, so of course we have to take her before she leaves Qatar tomorrow. I love the souk, I am so looking forward to going.
I thought I'd leave you with a couple pictures of our hotel room. I really like it a lot, the only thing that I would highly suggest to management is, GET RID OF THE CARPET!
