We departed Brisbane just before midnight on 26th February and after 2 pleasant flights arrived in Doha. We were 2 of only a handful to stop here and stood out amongst the arabs in their flowing robes and the women with only their eyes visible. Doha is a relaxed introduction to our travels and we have spent 2 lazy days wandering the Corniche ,souk and visiting the excellent museum of Islamic art. This place is much more Islamic than UAE but I think much nicer. On to Tunisia tomorrow.
