Anyone? We are moving in 6 weeks to Doha. I have 2 boy ages 5 months and 4 months. We love to meet other AP moms.
So far not to bad. We have been here about 6 weeks. Ramadan was not fun at all. There is basically nothing to do during the day for that whole month. The first thing I did was joined the Doha Mums group and that helped. I also joined the home school group although that one hasn't been very active during the summer. I hear that it will get much better for everything once summer is over. Alot of people leave Doha for the summer. We have made some friends already and I have had some luck finding moms that are more open minded. We are even working on organizing a small AP group through Doha mums. My husband wants me to put my sons name on a waiting list for school for kindergarten and I have yet to find one I like. I would much prefer to just home school because the schools here tend to be very academic from what I have seen. A lot of them follow the British system.
We live in West Bay at Pearl Qatar which I love! That part is awesome!
I find it weird that there are so many people working here that get paid next to nothing. You can get someone to come clean you place for 4 hours for under 30 bucks. There are lots of people that have live in help which cost around 400 a month. I still haven't gotten my drivers license and we have been having a driver take me. I find that weird too.
Oh and if you come here planning on having more kids they will have to be born in a hospital. Homebirth and water birth are not allowed.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have specific questions and I will try and answer them for you.
