Philly to Qatar

Our group is about an hour away from boarding our flight from Philadelphia to Doha, Qatar. It’s about a 12 hour flight to the richest country per capita in the world (average income is more than $100,000 a person!)

Some folks in our group decided to stay up all of last night and through the flight in hopes of conquering the jet lag; others (like myself) couldn’t keep our eyes open on even the short flight from Huntsville to Atlanta. Regardless of what sleeping pattern each group member chose, we will all be exhausted upon landing in Qatar.
