More on Qatar

I have published some of the photos I took whilst in Qatar and you can view them by clicking here.

This very short trip probably gave a false impression of Qatar as a whole. The city of Doha was very well developed with a very westernised lifestyle. However, when you leave by air it is clear that when the city boundary is crossed – the country reverts to pure desert. Unfortunately, I was not able to venture that far from the hotel on this occasion.

Another city another hotel room

This weeks city is Doha – Qatar. I arrived at 7pm local time this evening to be greeted by 24 degrees temperature – very nice I must say!

However this first photo was taken in Scotland at Aberdeen airport before departure about 6am.

Hotel room in Doha,
View from the room window at 12 midnight – Sitting in room with window open – very nice 😉

Both are a bit blurry – but I thought the scene was worth capturing.


First impression is that there is lot of development going on here! A number of the buildings in the views above are under construction – spot the high cranes! I am told that my hotel ( figure of speech – the one I am staying in to be more correct) is built on reclaimed land – its right on the sea front. I will definitely try to capture some more photos tomorrow when it is daylight.
