Diggin' Doha-our Visit to see PR Becca

The Doha skyline is more attractive than Kuwait, and the sea looks "cleaner". In fact, to sum it up although the two places are similar, I would have to say that Doha is "Greener, Cleaner and More Spacious".
You can't really tell in this picture, but behind us is a large pearl (Doha was once a pearl port). This monument is cement, sorta like the Qatarian equivalent of PR's Pelican Pete. Of course, we had to pose for pictures.

The Qatari government (Under the aspices of Sheika Mosha) has done a lot of work to clean up the city and make it attractive. This is the site of the old souk, Waqif, which has been remodeled to look old (it's quite new). Very effective I think.

We had a very interesting time here, enjoying the shops, the atmosphere and most of all fun with Becca!
