I wish someone would tell me I'm off to Qatar.

Sailed past it many times on my way to Kuwait, Iraq and Iran.
Never been though.

I went there briefly a few years ago and compared to Saudi it's almost western. There's plenty of drink in major hotels and there are bars. (getting the priorities right!). The people are friendly and most speak English. Be very careful not to photograph individuals unless you have their permission. Most people in arab countries don't like having their pics taken and they'll probably kick off shouting and bawling if they catch you doing candids and the like. Don't photograph the police or army either. Shaking hands with the local womenfolk is a big no-no, unless they extend their hand first. It'll still be b***dy hot there so take very light clothing. Hope that helps
