Tibet: Day 2 - Doha, Qatar

30 September 2007

First stage of the journey takes us to Doha, with its L-shaped city views. Old, low-rise buildings stretch along the coast toward a very modern development of skyscrapers and cranes. A day here, before we fly to Kathmandu this afternoon.

The entire city is a building site. Outside it’s 40°C plus; the air hits you like a brick wall.


It's too hot to walk anywhere, so I took the lift to the top, twenty-sixth, floor of the hotel, and drew the view back along the peninsula.
