Out of the Ordinary

Unusual day in Doha, Qatar this past Monday, 26 December, 2016, with thick fog hovering over the ground all day long. This did not please sun seeking holiday makers from abroad.

The staff down at the beach on the other hand, imported workers from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan are used to standing out there in 45C weather all day every day. It even gets to 52C (125F) sometimes, one told me. For them the cooler temperatures and deserted waterfront were a different story.

Said one, “It is awesome, sir!”
