Doha Reloaded 2016 (Drinking water while diving, “Sambil menyelam minum air”)

Whirlwind business trip to Doha, Qatar. Attended workshop organized by LIAQ, (Library and Information Association, Qatar) on “Library trends: leading into the future” in collaboration with Mortenson center for international library programs.

Had a good discussion with Dr Clara Chu, Director and Distinguished Professor of the Mortenson Center.

Stayed at the Torch Doha. Wonderful place, plus it’s beside Villagio 🙂

The room is controlled by an ‘intelligent ipad’.  It controls all the room functions: from drawing curtains, the room lights, launching the internet, TV, movies, etc etc. Cool.

At the same, I visited my brother whose wife had just given birth: baby Boy.  (his third).  My parents were there too and I celebrated Mother’s day there as well.

Met up with an ol’ buddy.
