Mærsk FDP 2005 Party

We went on our first night out here without Soffi this thursday. We've enjoyed an evening in the Intercontinental Hotel here in Doha at the big Mærsk party of the year. It was strange to leave the house without a diaper bag and leaving Soffi behind with a sweet girl from the Phillipines, yet who we even hardly know, but hey what can you do? You either leave her with a nanny, or you are stuck in the house for 3 years, and just never go out.
... and so we went to party... We were picked up by a bus at our compound at 6.15 pm, at 7 pm we were already listening to the welcome speech held by the Danish CEO of Mærsk Oil who arrived to Qatar to this occasion (and probably tons of other meetings).
The party was held on the beach, well on a terrace facing the sea, it was the most gorgeous view, seeing the skyscrapers in their night lighting and watching the moon...The party was fancy, good food, alcohol (though only beer and wine, but that's a big deal here), dancing and just the sorroundings... the band came directly from Denmark, just for this occasion...
These are our new neighbours. We are quite lucky as most of the people here are much older than us, Sam and Vicky are exactely the same age:-). They are Brittish, have two sons, and they arrived in January, which means they hopefully won't leave any soon...
Vicky and me.The lady with the microfon is Peter's boss... man, she has a good voice...

We had a good time all in all, I couldn't relax 100% though, was worried for Soffi for the whole time, but that's just how it is. Actually there was absolutely no problem with her, she wasn't even crying for a second! Ergo, this wasn't our last time out on town without her:-).

  3. Jaj én imádtam Törökországot, meg a török ételeket, csak a török férfiakat nem, vagy nagyon alacsonyak, vagy nagyon buták, vagy nagyon patriárkák... aki meg nem az volt, az a kivétel volt, de kevés... Isztanbul roppant izgalmas egy hely, érdemes bejárni, még ott is lakni egy idejig, de nem végállomás, habár nekem semmi sem az, tudod... zakatol a vonat...
