|teppanyaki: beer, chicken, veggies, and fried rice|
Another dinner at Oishi Sushi! Last time we saw the teppanyaki and O thought it was amazing as he had never seen teppanyaki before... I still remember every birthday at Benihana when I was 13...ha... So anyway, this time we tried it and it was fantastic! Wow! The chicken and fried rice were the best. Really, really good!

Musfer Sinkhole is the official name of a karst cave in Umm Al Shabrum, central Qatar. This sinkhole is one of the karst features. Other karst features include depressions, caves, and solution hollows. Karst is a distinctive environment characterized by landforms that are the product of dissolution of surface and subsurface rock by natural water to a greater extent than in other landscapes. It occurs both as surface and underground features. Several substantial caves are known in Qatar, but many have probably been filled with blown sand, or have collapsed to produce some of the thousands of depressions or dolines.
It wasn't too difficult to find the cave. The opening isn't that big but it's surrounded by a fence which made it clear.
Inside was mostly limestone as that's what Qatar is predominantly made up of. We did find a bit of gypsum.
It goes quite deep!
Nearby we passed this old police station for Um Al-Shobrum.

Bandar Aden has special foods for Ramadan, including samosa, soup, and pudding.
I love this tomato based soup with lamb... :)
