I'm in Qatar this week. It's growing on me a lot, actually. It has a lovely corniche area which people jog/walk along at night. This time I'm staying in the Movenpick- great view of sparkling blue sea, sand, palm trees.
Couple of things that are different here in Qatar: it's a few degrees colder. Quite significantly so in the evening.
Not every hotel has an alcohol licence. And wouldn't you know it - mine is one which doesn't. You can imagine my disappointment as I settled down in my fluffy bathrobe, freshly fake tanned, to order a nice glass of pinot grigio. I had to settle for a bottle of mineral water. Delicious! Still, my liver and my waistline will be grateful in the long run, I guess.
