We’ve been staying at home for the past few weeks as we’re not the “malling” type and rather spend the day lazying at home. Weekends can be busy if you really want them to be and honestly, there are places to go to and events that may be happening around Qatar. However, being at home is the best place to be on the weekends; no traffic, no need to get up early, no face-swapping in the malls. We haven’t really gone out for probably 3 weekends in a row so we decided to go to Corniche this morning to break the trend.

Doha Corniche

We got up at about 7:30 which was already a bit late but we assumed was good enough since early mornings can still be cold in Doha. We got to Corniche at about 8:00 and settled in an area where there was shade. We had some sandwiches that Mavis made along with coffee for us and chocolate for Xianelle. We wanted to have stayed a little longer if only the wind wasn’t so chilly. So our picnic actually was about 15 minutes long as we had to run to the car to keep warm.

Since Mavis wanted to get some crabs, a  quick trip to the small “fish market” in the Corniche was needed. Xiane and I walked around the area looing at barnacles growing on the concrete stairs and watching people trying to catch fishes with their hook and poles.after some time, we said goodbye to the fishermen and went to Megamart for some groceries then went home.

And that was how we spent our Saturday!
