Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Behind the Scenes...Sort of

There are grumblings in the Doha air regarding the appropriateness of some women's choice of dress these days. The modesty police (offended local citizens) are watching, ladies, like it or not.

Doha News talks about it here...

Questions arise over dress code in Qatar - where do you draw the line?

You would think these same concerned citizens would be after some of the storefront windows around the malls. I've always been taken aback when I pass them by, but it's gotten even a bit more interesting as of late. I suppose I must keep in mind that what we wear in the bedroom and on the streets of Doha are apples and oranges (or handcuffs?), but I feel sure that you, the readers, have a need to keep abreast of our current lingerie trends. No?

  1. I use in the Souq in Doha a few days ago and was surprised to see in a shop window (which was closed already) a very skimpy piece of lingerie... if you could call it that. It was a black knitted top and not much more than chords for the bottom. Wild! I was passing through from KSA to the US. Didn't expect to see that, much less in the Soug, which I assume is afar more traditional than then malls.


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
