What I See (Mostly Thru My BlackBerry)
From my trip in early January 2012 to Doha, Qatar. Was fortunate enough to be invited by some dear friends (Qatari) to go into the middle of the desert and spending some time in their tents. The people of Qatar love to rent some plots of land and put up their tents in the desert during the cool months (October to March). Over the weekends, they would get into their SUVs/4x4s and spend the weekends with friends and families in their tents.
I was honored as not many people get the privileged to be invited into the private dwellings of Arabs/Qatari. These are usually reserved for very close friends and families. And for that, I’ll treasure these moments and their beautiful friendship.
The tents (6 of them) are very spacious and each of them serves a specific purpose; sleeping, lounging, kitchen, servants quarters, etc. And they come with running water stored in large tanks.
It was a fun and fabulous time, just sitting and talking, and driving up and down those sand dunes. What a life! To my dear Qatari friends, thank you for your garcious hospitality and your kind frienship, you are indeed my brothers. Jazakallah khair.
