Musical greetings to all from MB.
The 10th-anniversary concert of the Qatar Philharmonic took place last night at the Qatar National Convention Centre. It was attended by Sheika Mousa, mother of the Ruler (Emir) of Qatar, and MB, mother of nobody. Sheika Mousa looked very well in her stylish abiya and posed for some photos at the evening’s end with some orchestral VIPs. But she did not get the pleasure of meeting MB. The humble MB much preferred to remain invisible lest he grab too much of the limelight.

Thanks to Patti for this week’s challenge.
MB featured Casa Doina restaurant in a previous post of random shots from Romania, where he travelled in August 2018 with daughter MB2.
The restaurant is a mostly ‘eating outside’ experience, in the midst of a small forest in the centre of Bucharest city. If ever in Bucharest…….!

Thanks to Amy for this week’s challenge. Last week’s actually – MB comes to it a little late!
The below shot isn’t anything to write home about MB guesses. It would never win any photo prizes. It isn’t nearly as spectacular as the many landscape shots that others have submitted for the challenge, if one cares to click and look. Read More

Qatar won the Asian Football Cup tonight, beating Japan 3-1.
Earlier in the week they had beaten UAE by a 4-0 scoreline, a victory made all the sweeter by the fact that UAE is one of the countries imposing an economic and travel blockade on Qatar for last 18 months or so.
So for the weekend and week ahead, the country will be going bananas. The streets are chocka tonight with flag waving local and expats delighting in the victory.
Happy weekend to all.
