I contacted my phone service yesterday and although I will have the ability to make and receive international calls, it'll be expensive. So here is my request: please don't text or call me while I am away. Even if I don't pick up, I'll still get charged for the incoming calls and texts. It isn't that I don't want to talk to you, my dear family and friends; I'd just prefer to use the extra money on adventures in Qatar. :)
I do hope to be checking my e mail and FB account regularly.
