hotel yoga breathing

view from my hotel window in Kuwait this morning.
my space for yoga is a little smaller than in the previous hotel. i brought a mat this time. no practice on a towel.
at home i follow vinyasa krama. when traveling i adapt ashtanga primary and secondary poses, or do yin yoga.
it's a distracted practice, but better than no practice. near the time of practice conclusion, i had found my breath, with good yoga breathing pattern.

practicing Doha pearl

i have been practicing yoga more regularly in the morning again, thanks to my new work schedule and for waking up earlier. i am also monitoring my eating with Cronometer online, keeping my weight in check. i need to lose 2 kg or get a new wardrobe

to weeks ago i was in Doha, Qatar, where i met with my former colleague Mike T.

we toured the new Doha International Airport, which we both worked on and where he has managed the construction administration. it will open to the public soon

Mike drove me around the commercial business district of Doha

a building by Jean Nouvel, a much loved architect in this city. he is also designing a new museum for the city

the city seems like a playground for architects, with buildings such as these zig-zagging ones

we visited "the Pearl", where Mike and his wife Quynh live. this project was master planned by my previous employer

sampled vegetarian air

at a Lebanese restaurant in Kuwait we sampled mint lemonade,
grilled fish with tartar sauce
and hot pita pockets.
at an Indian vegetarian restaurant we tried mushroom sautee and a potato curry,
which we enjoyed with rotis. the restaurant was in the heart of the new commercial business district, so we saw a lot of new contemporary architecture.
the pool at hotel was attractive, but the air temperature outside made it difficult to be tempted in to jumping in.
yesterday i practiced yoga in this room
the sun rise outside the window
the management placed a basket of fruit and some sweets.

Kuwait vibrant food


i arrived in Kuwait City yesterday, flying through from Shanghai to Qatar. at lunch we ate at the seafood restaurant on the 19th floor of my hotel. the tint on the windows causes the bluish view.

this is the view from my window room this morning. when opening the window, the true colors come  through. the ocean really is bluish color over here. the center of the city, with its vibrant new skyscrapers lies to the north of the hotel.

this morning i did hotel room yoga, in the comfortable sitting room of my hotel room. i've been enjoying mediterranean food and also working a lot.
