My daughter Jessica is back safe in Pittsburgh, PA, from her CMU Spring Break in Qatar (CMU-Q). It has been fascinating listening to her stories about the trip. You can see Jessica’s pictures at

One of Jessica’s Doha, Qatar photos surprised me. It is of a monument honoring the Qatari traditional coffee pot. This coffee pot looks very similar to one I have in my home office, which my father brought home many years ago from one of his trips to the Middle East. He thinks he bought it on Oman.
