Expect the Unexpected

Yesterday we moved from our hotel to temporary housing. When you move to another country, the number one rule of thumb is to be flexible and to expect the unexpected. Originally we were going to move to an apartment near the school in Al Walkra, but for now there has been a slight change in plans. This year alone over 50,000 people are moving to Al Walkra to help expand the new airport. Needless to say, there isn’t enough housing for all of us to move at once. Families with kids are moving in to the original apartment Saturday, but we decided to stay behind in Doha for a little longer. We met some new friends from our school, and it didn’t take long for them to convince us to stay with them here in the big city. We will be here for at least a month. It’s a rough life… 🙂

We also got to visit the school yesterday. It was both exciting and a little overwhelming. We are helping start a brand new school, and by brand new I mean there is only a building with absolutely nothing in it. Starting Sunday (the work week here is Sunday-Thursday because holy day is on Friday) we will start working. We have at least 1,700 boxes of furniture and supplies to unpack and sort. Did I mention we only have two weeks before school starts?!!?? Our paid vacation will soon be over, but we are more than ready for the challenge. Founding teachers of Vision International School…how cool is that. 🙂
