Thanks to Tracie, on Saturday night we enjoyed a wonderful belated Thanksgiving. The festivities were held in Al Khor, the city where Jeff works. We gladly drove our lovely new vehicle there, even though we had already been driving all day. When we entered the compound, we were greeted by this:
|Dave, Dean and Carlo, three teachers Jeff works with, playing guitar|
|Lovely Honour and her friends|
|Kaiya wanted to help her dad strum.|
|Can I just say how happy it makes me to see Jeff with guitar in hand?|
|Listening to the guys play|
It was an impressive spread. Many people became honourary Canadians that night, eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and Tracie's wonderful apple and pumpkin pies.
|The desserts were pretty amazing. My favourite was this homemade carrot cake.|
It was the perfect way to end the weekend. I met some great people, had some good conversation, and for the first time since arriving in Doha, felt part of a community. Thank you, Tracie, for bringing us together.
