My winter break

I got to the chance to go to Qatar for R & R. I've been in Afghanistan for about 4 months and it was a good time for a break. It was sooo nice to get out of the snow.

I met up with a couple people who landed there at the same time as I did. We did some traveling to get the base we would be stayin at but it was worth it.

Qatar's a pretty cool place and there was just enough American stuff on the base to make me feel a little closer to home. A girl I met and I went to Chilis and later had smoothies at a gym near by.

I think I had so much fun here because that was the goal. Most people were there on their breaks as well, so everyone was cutting loose. I think the only disturbing part was that there were soooo many guys. I only hung out with 1 girl, the only one I could find practically.

I got to go out to eat at a local place and went shopping at a near by mall outside of the base. The best part of my trip had to be the water excursion. We took a doha boat to the middle of the persian gulf, parked, and did some jet skiing and speed boating. I've never done anything like that before.
