Hello from Doha Qatar!!

So we made it to Cape Town airport with time enough to get our VAT tax back and get some more snacks. Well we already had yummy chocolate crunch cookies from Joan, and the oaty cookies from the guest house guy in Muzienberg, but snacks are always good. (I was disapointed I couldn't find my salt and vinegar Simba Chips)

So the 11 and a 1/2 hour flight luckily wasn't too packed. I took 1/2 a sleeping pill and found a couple seats to sleep on. Yahoo!!!! I can't sleep sitting up, so I was lucky.

Did I mention Qatar Airlines rocks!!! They served us two dinners (one before we stopped in Johannesburg, the other an hour after)...... they also have complimentary juice, pop, wine, beer, and hard liquor. Cool!!!

We made it to Doha and had a drive to our complimentary room at he Royal Qatar hotel. I was so glad to have a room and we were able to sleep the day away. We had a buffet breakfast and lunch that they luckily phoned and woke us up for it. We eventually got our act together and were planning on doing a mini tour of the city, but we forgot that we were further North and the sun went down real quick before 6PM. Oops.

Oh well..... we wandered around anyways to stretch our legs and see what there was.

Our next flight was the killer. It was only 4 1/2 hours, but at a horrible time. Our flight left about 8:30PM local time, and arrived 5AM local time in Chennai. No time or space to sleep. Plus with the time change we missed the night.

No biggie. We're here now and we will sleep.

Off and running...

Meeeeee
