As A invited us all to a hat party, after much deliberation I decided that I would go with a gothloli hat. Gothloli is a type of Japanese fashion which includes cute little hats with lace and bows. I was all set out to make one from scratch since how could I ever know where to find one of these in Qatar and I couldn't imagine them even existing here. So O and I headed over to the arts and crafts souq to one of my favorite shops that has all things arts and crafts and has even more stuff than Michael's. I was looking for materials for the hat and showing pictures to the store employees who then took me here:

Quite an eventful afternoon at Doha Zoo!

I got my first flat tire in Doha. We were totally lost with what to do but luckily a kind Qatari man stopped to help us. We were having trouble getting the crank under so what he did was put a rock under the tire to raise it more. He had the tire off and the new one on only moments after! He was so kind!

The nights are getting cooler and it seems like the hedgehogs are more willing to come out of the hedges. We caught so many one night that we had to keep them in a box.
This little girl was super cute and hyper. See videos of her below:
Somehow they can all snuggle up together and the spikes don't bother them?
