My trip to the #MiddleEast some photos from Qatar

Qatar borders on the Persian Gulf. First impressions:

  • It was VERY hot and unexpectedly humid.
  • Qatar is very tidy, modern, and the people who I met were extremely friendly and industrious.

Above: an early morning view from the hotel. On the other side of this body of sea is Persia / Iran. To the left Kuwait, to the right the Emirates.

Below: the high-rise opposite of the hotel. None of these buildings are older than 10-15 years. Qatar is booming.

Below: All buildings are heavily air-conditioned, entering my hotel room for the first time, was stunningly cold. I put the air-conditioner up to the 27C (it was on 18C originally). On the other hand, as I walked out of the hotel lobby, the heat and humidity hit like a hammer, it felt like 50C. That was only on the first day though, the following day was much better. Or did I get used to it? In any case, I wonder what it is like in the high of summer.
