Sitting outside the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha,Qatar

It was a very hot day in Doha – Shane told me it was 50 degrees Celsius or 122 degrees Fahrenheit. It was uncomfortable to be outside, so we visited the Museum of Islamic Art, it was cool inside. There were many items, some more than 1000 years old.

I liked the brass objects and scientific equipment the best. I learned many things, and saw something called calligraphy – it makes words look very beautiful. Arabic has flexible ways to write letters, so it is easy to use calligraphy with them.
