In the continuity of discovering new places just the 2 of us (click here and here), MR and I took a break from work that afternoon to try out French Coffee Shop in Metz, France. Anyone who knows me well knows that I love Starbucks. Not particularly because of the coffee, but it reminds me of my past. All those afternoons and after-dinner coffees. Ahhhh ... I miss home.

It was impossible not to visit the Souq Waqif. To me, this was the center of the city and not just literally. When I was there about 6 years ago (click here for the post), it was close to midnight and all the stores were closed already. We sat down at a Shisha place and stayed for an hour. It was fun, but looking back it was a little torturous. I mean, it was right there, but behind closed doors and windows. Of course, I promised myself I would go back and do more than sniffing the air, window-shopping, and imagining talking to store sellers.

Life has been particularly difficult these past months. Past demons have been resurfacing, car problems, having only 1 car following our accident, SO hurting herself, getting ill, missing deadline for my certification, changes at work.... Name it - I got it. I used to smile about it, joked about it even. How can I be so unlucky??? I used to say. But it's been 6-7 months and it's not funny anymore. I am in a vicious cycle and truthfully I don't know how to get out of it. I like to think of myself as a positive person, but this time it's hard. :'(

On our fourth day in Qatar, we went "malling" all together as a family. I have missed malling as I don't do it at all here in France. Sadly, there are no malls yet. I say yet because if all goes well one should open by October this year. Yay!

On day 3 of our Qatar vacation, we decided to head to the Museum of Islamic Art. I personally love museums! Unfortunately, my husband, MR, isn't exactly a fan of museums, which is just one more point that make us completely different from each other. But hey, don't they say opposites have a way of attracting each other ... ???

We've been thinking about going to London for a weekend escapade lately. MR hasn't been there yet, but with his Filipino passport, we have to file a visa in Paris weeks before actually going. It's a bit of a hassle with our busy schedule, but there's really no way around it. We'll just have to see.
