Well, I’m back…  I never thought I would set foot into the sandbox again and yet here I am, enticed by a friend to come here to work on the Pan Arab Games.  The last time I was here I was running from things back in the states, this time I’m looking for a challenge and I think I may have found it.  The Games are a little behind in planning, not by any fault of anyone here, just a lack of experience it seems.  That’s ok, everyone has to start somewhere and it’s best to start somewhere like Doha, where you get the support of your team to help you find the best ways to get things done!

When my friend asked me to be a part of these games I was interested, the challenge this time is being the head of competition venues for logistics.  It’s a huge step for me, and I hope I’m up for the challenge.  I’m writing this on what is supposed to be my first day, I’m already awake at 4:30 AM, not because I’m nervous, it’s more a lack of sleep on the flight here, coupled with the 10 hour time difference from home…

Last time I was running, this time a challenge, and part of that challenge is being in touch with someone back home.  I’m looking forward to the work challenge, the keeping in touch is going to be hard with the lack of holidays.  I will get a brief one at the beginning of September, but it looks like based on the amount of work that needs to be done and the short time it needs to be done in, my leaving for any part of my holiday is not going to happen…  Maybe I can entice the certain someone onto a plane for 19 hours to come visit me…
