Twenty Pages In
You know that feeling you get when you’re about twenty pages into a book and you’re finally all in, committed to the story, the characters, and where it’s going. Life is like that too, especially when you move to a new place. At first, it’s strange. Unknown. Exciting. A little scary, which only fuels the excitement. Sometimes it grabs a hold of you right from the get-go. Other times you have to warm to it. Or maybe it’s just not for you, no matter how much time and effort you put into it. Then it’s time to move on. Doha was an easy place to fall into. It had all the comforts of home, while also being foreign enough to keep it interesting. For an expat, that’s all you need.
