Did I mention it is hot?

I'm an ex-pat now.
Settling in

Given that we arrived in Doha in the summer we expected it to be hot. And it is. Very hot. The temperature has rarely been below 40°C (104°F) since we arrived. But despite the warnings of terrible humidity we have found it to be a dry heat, which is tolerable – for short periods of time at least.

Until last evening.

We left the apartment to walk the 2 blocks to the mall, and felt like we had stepped into a steam room. 40° with 25% humidity in the morning was bearable, 40° and 80% humidity was something else altogether. I think it is going to be a long summer!

The melting ice cream truck is a sculpture titled Hot With The Chance of Late Storm that was unveiled at the 2006 Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney.
