Just roaming around…
The highest tower in Qatar at 300m only. Taller than PBCom by 41m, Philippines' higher tower.
I just moved into a new job that will definitely change my running passion. I’m moving to middle east. For how long, I don’t know. Oh well, before I get into serious work, I guess I need to go around the Qatar area first.
On of Villaggio Posts
First, was the Aspire Tower, the highest tower in Qatar that is at least 300m high. I bet PBCom tower was taller but it was actually not. It is higher by a couple of meters. If you try too look at it closely, it looks like a torch for it symbolized the December 2006 Asian Games.
Still at Villaggio
Next is this Villaggio Mall. This pseudo-Venice place will make you feel (though not quite) you are in Venice. Oh I should have roam around more to get a better picture. Did I mention they have an Adidas Sale here? McDonalds and KFC too! :P
Oh there's a bridge inside the mall!
Another place that I look at is the Aspire park, I bet it’s really a good place to run! I thought at first that Qatar is pure sand but I was wrong. Now I wonder how much they spent to get a fertile soil and plant some bermuda grass on it. Aspire park has a nice loop, with pavement better than UP Diliman. Pretty neat eh-?
To the right is the aspire tower, to the left is a fat fat tree like me. :P
Now you just wouldn’t want to run here at noon time… Weather here is extremely hot.
Hmmm, this is where you pass if you want to get refreshed after a run.
Hopefully, I could get a chance of going to some places too.
That’s all for now.
