A nightly walk through Doha, Qatar #Travel #Reporting #ArabianNights

View of the amazing skyline of Doha, Qatar. On the left the Corniche, on the right the Persian Gulf.

Below: a section of the souk where traders specialize in selling pets, birds, dogs, cats, tropical fish…  you name it. Exotic ones too, like this parrot. Nice fluffy kittens and puppies, most of which very passive or sleeping. Personally I couldn’t buy anything here, I felt pity for most of the poor animals. The quality is doubtful too, naturally. Interestingly few pets are actually visible in the streets: no dogs definitely, and the cats that roam about are all obviously wild outcasts.

One of the souks of Doha. Like most parts of Doha, this is a modern, new area, so not overtly exotic. Especially interesting for tourists that like to purchase gold jewelry, I’ve heard that it is possible to make a good deal. Many pleasant restaurants line the pavement… as a special service to the clientele, air conditioners (those big grey boxes visible in the picture) are put on the pavement outside to blow cold air at the diners. Now,that’s exotic, I guess.
