Welcome to Qatar

I'm in the Souq, the marketplace in downtown Doha, the capital of Qatar. Men in their long white gowns--or brown mouse colored ones--with their red and white or white headdresses--go by. And women in their black abeyas and hair all covered and sometimes faces too.... Hookah pipes are passed freely in cafes with fruit juices everywhere.... Although everything is familiar, nothing is.
