Doha - Qatar Anyone know anything?

Looks like work is sending me out there for a few months. Anyone have any knowledge of the place.

Stopped over at the airport a couple of years ago but that doesn't count does it?

I know that Qatar is pronounced "Catter", as opposed to "catarrh", as I thought previously.

HTH :bye:

I have been many years back, so that won't count now. However, I do have friends out there right now, and they are loving it.

Little snippet from an EM prior to Xmas....

Life here is still good (although it has rained the last few days and the sky is grey and miserable - we take the sunshine for granted now so its a bit of a shock when the sky isn't blue). Kids are still enjoying themselves - I went yesterday morning to see them in their school xmas concert (words to 12 days of xmas had been changed to "on the first day of winter my good friend sent to me...." no as not to offend the Arabs in the school!!! )


:unsure:

Open displays of affection are frowned upon under local muslim custom and culture


Well, three months down and one to go.

Been a lot different than I expected.

Loads of laughs and busy most weekends.

Looking forward to heading home for R&R and seeing loved ones etc.

If anyone is heading out here with work or for a stop off to somewhere else I can deffo give you the low down.

The ironic thing about life is that no one gets out alive...Huh

have you had visits from loved ones, Slips? or have you been back to the UK - it seems an awfully long time to be away from home on your own without seeing family.
