Well, almost exactly 20 hours after leaving our house in Austin we arrived at the Retaj Al Rayan Hotel in Doha, Qatar. Diana and I flew to Washington D.C. where we met up with Sam Lewis, Kelly Pettiford and Ken Taylor to board the long long flight to Qatar. The 13 hours on the plane wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I think we got a good 6 hours of sleep. Each seat had individual monitors with a ton of selections of movies, TV shows, music and games, so it was easy to stay distracted during the flight.
It’s very warm and surprisingly humid here. We are just blocks from the water. The architecture here is absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to see it all in the daylight tomorrow.
It’s time to try to go get some sleep. We’ll be up early for cardio and a workout in the morning! Stay tuned
Even though he reportedly slept for most of the flight Sam was dozing off on the couch in the lobby while we were waiting for our rooms.
