Georgetown Qatar Opening

live walking tour of the new building for Sheikha Mozah

It was so cool to see Sheikha Mozah and John DeGioia was also there.  The catering after the speeches and presentations was also amazing with foods from all over the world.  Made Leo's look even more embarrassing.

The inside of the new Georgetown building was done really well and clearly there was a lot of thought and planning.  The boxy outside well... I think an Islamic/Arab art inspired version of Healy Hall would have been awesome for the outside.  It could have even been done in the gingerbread architecture styles of Sanaa.

Attendees got a bag with this chocolate inside.  It is shaped like the pillars outside the building.  The chocolate is from La Cigale.  Yup, this was yummy.
