I looked forward to get more of Doha the moment I returned. Although I just tried taking photos of the city from the car I am in, I was glad enough to get some of the buildings in Doha and it’s sunset. I was able to go back once again to Aspire Park and Villagio and took more photos. This time with some friends. At least I can now have a subject.
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.
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.
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! 😛
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-?
Now you just wouldn’t want to run here at noon time… Weather here is extremely hot.
Hopefully, I could get a chance of going to some places too.
