It’s my fourth month in Doha.
Before coming here and also during these months I always heard people complaining about Doha. It’s boring, there is nothing to do, there are a lot of rules, there aren’t all things that we have in Europe.
Ok, it’s true. There are rules. But don’t you have rules in your country as well? They are different, I know. But I also know that I’m living in a country with a culture which is very far from mine. And despite this I feel very well here.
I feel at home here.
Doha is geographically in the middle between Saudi Arabia and UAE. In another words between a country with a very closed culture and another one which is now more Western than some western countries! And also the attitude of Doha (and so Qatar) is same. It’s a modern, very modern city on one side and a traditional arabic city on the other side.
I’m just trying to say that most of the time you and your attitude make feel a new place as your home.
You know? It will be funny reading again this post in one year! I will let you know if my sensations will be changed or not!
But for the moment, as a supporter of Doha, I decided to post an outift that Mrs B. wore recently. I think she is one of the biggest fan of this city and you can understand just looking her! (For all people who don’t live here, official colors of Qatar are white and burgundy!)
