    Figster,

    About the same thing you can do in most Middle East countries...eat, shop, relax. and (in Qatar) have a beer....

    Are you staying at a hotel? The club in the Marriott (outside the front door, and around the building to the right) sux... but, it's a club (mostly younger people). It was much better when it was on the top floor. The Sheraton (shaped like a pyramid) has a decent Italian resturant, and the Movenpick has ok food but a great selection of wine with dinner.

    You should have called me...I'm five minutes from the airport... we could'a had a Starbucks!

    Call me when you get back, if you come through Kuwait, and we'll take the car out...

    You should go the hydro-therapy pool at the Four Seasons and ,if you have time , try getting out to the dunes and doing some atv'ing.

    Last time I had dinner at the Movenpick was, jeepers, three years ago... and they had a GREAT wine selection...

    Times change.... thanks for the info... I'll strike that off my list of 'places with a good selection of wine for dinner' ...!
