Such a Cool Mall!

Hello lovely friends, family, and blogging buddies! I hope you all are well on this wonderful Friday!

Things have been good here in Qatar thus far! Thursday night we went to dinner at one of the restaurants in our hotel and had SUSHI! Y'all don't realize how long it has been since we have had sushi. Now I can't seem to get enough of it. I forgot how much I LOVE the stuff. But there aren't any great places in Germany to have sushi. It's been a real treat getting to gorge myself on it here. They even serve some at our breakfast buffet... strange I know, but I'm down to eat sushi anytime!! While we were eating out on Thursday night we met a couple of local Qatari men who ended up buying us drinks. It's so interesting to meet different people from all over the world!

Last night Jon and I went to the mall here in Qatar. This mall is AWESOME. I have posted a blog in the past about this mall, but for my newer readers I'll share some of the pictures I took last night.

All of the ceilings in the mall are painted to look like the sky. Some are of the night sky and some are of the sky during the day with beautiful clouds.
Aren't the ceilings so cool! The mall is made to look like an Italian city. Not only that, but there is a canal through the mall with gondola rides!!

After walking around taking pictures we decided to grab some dinner at a Mongolian grill. The food is to die for! First you choose the type of meat you want, then vegetables, noodles, sauce, and then they cook it right there in front of you.

The best thing about the shopping in Qatar is the great stores! I was so excited to see they have a Banana Republic. Jon and I both bought some clothes. They also have a Gap and some other great stores from the states. I was THRILLED!! Too bad they don't have a Target or I would be in Heaven! It was such a treat to get to shop at these stores.

This weekend we plan on seeing Shutter Island. I love Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese. And the movie just looks plain awesome.

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!!
I'll be back with another update of our Adventures in Qatar.

Happy Friday!

Wow!!! That is cool! Let me know how Shutter Island is, I think I want to see it but I'm afraid it will be too scary!

I am super jealous of your sushi extravaganzas! It's only been 2 months since I've had it, and I would kill for some!

That mall looks like the Venetian in Vegas!
