Middle East - Qatar
Arriving Qatar was a little surprising, especially when we did not even plan to come here. It was only because there was a delayed on our last flight (Ankara, Turkey) for 2 and a half hours that we missed our connecting flight to Auckland, New Zealand. So this means, that we had the whole day to explore the country.
Qatar is a peninsular Arab country whose terrain comprises arid desert and a long Persian (Arab) Gulf shoreline of beaches and dunes. Also on the coast is the capital, Doha, known for its futuristic skyscrapers and other ultramodern architecture inspired by ancient Islamic design, such as the limestone Museum of Islamic Art. The museum sits on the city’s Corniche waterfront promenade.
