3 weeks in Doha
Still a few things I need to get used to here in Qatar. Like getting into the wrong side of the car, or looking the other way when crossing the road! Been quite a few near death experiences.
Speaking about near death - even though petrol is only QR 0.80 a litre (about R1.60) - I actually ran out of it the first day I was driving here. Midday, on a busy main road, the car just switches off. Had to get out, push it through traffic and then find a garage. Filled a 5 litre tin for under R10!
It's Sunday morning now, and I've been at work since 6am - that is something else that I'm going to need to get used to...
