This month we are going to be doing some exploring in Qatar primarily for a writing project we are working on and secondly to make sure we’ve seen most everything this country has to offer before we leave for good. Here are a few of the things we saw on today’s outing.
The first is the interior of the Moorish-style Doha fort, dubbed Al Koot fort, which is currently closed for refurbishing. We managed to sneak in anyway. The second here is of a famous monument along the Corniche: The one and only water jars. The third is of the gate of the fort, which was established in 1925. Qatar is famous for these beautiful medieval-looking wooden doors. All images enlarge on click.
