    If you are wondering how I stumbled upon your blog, then I will give you this clue, try searching for: “Doha breadboards” on Google.

    Surprisingly I found you are an SO user as well, what are the odds!

    BTW, I still didn’t find a place to buy a breadboard in Doha ๐Ÿ™

    You can find breadboards in Musheirib. Ask for a place called “Basheer Radio”, or better yet, ask for “AlAnnabi Electronics”. There’s a tiny store next to it called “Sof-Tel”, not to be confused with “Sofitel”. It’s relatively cheap and you should find breadboards there. I got a few from them a couple of years ago when I needed them for a university project.

    I got them from the same AlAnnabi, in 1997, 13 years ago!

    They’re on Al-Asmakh street, near what used to be called “Arab Bank Roundabout”, close to Souq Waqif.

    This is a Google Map of the area…

    The only reason this is not as widely read is because you haven’t publicised it. Really enjoyed the last few posts.

    After you mentioned your piece on “walking” on Doha News, I was curious and thus read it. Your pinpoint accuracy on the conclusion made me browse a bit more till I read your part on signs and languages: tres bien aussi! I think you gained yourself a new fan ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep up the refreshing writing.
