Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflection

This was a perfect theme for me since I just started taking photos of reflections recently. Hope you like them…

First picture is the Royal African Museum in Tervuren, Belgium. Water was unbelievably still and calm…a good ingredient for reflection.

Second picture was taken in our Tervuren Park, not too far from the museum above. The trees are partially reflected in the water.

Half a day in Doha, Qatar

Just got back from Jeddah, KSA three days ago. On our way to Jeddah, we had a stop over at Doha Int’l Airport in Qatar for 22 hours. Ofcourse who would miss that opportunity to visit this small but rich and very organized country? We spent a night in Movenpick Hotel near the airport. Next day our flight to Jeddah was at night. So we had the whole day to roam around the city. Not to mention, going from below freezing temperature in Belgium to a hot place was simply fabulous. Hope you enjoy the following pictures while I work on the page on Doha, Qatar with travel tips and other info.
