It was February 2012 when we first came out to Qatar to decide whether Doha was somewhere we could live… clearly the answer was yes.
Last February our visit coincided with the Souq Waqif Spring Festival… the 2013 festival started yesterday. During evenings and weekends there are performers out on the street for a seemingly endless stream of entertainment.
There are several stages around the Souq and on almost every corner some activity. When we arrived in the late afternoon, the smaller stage had what appeared to be enormous Smurfs singing and dancing… we didn’t stop for long.
We stopped awhile to watch the snake charmer.
The we sat down at the Belgian Café for a cold Lemon with mint and watched as the parade went by.
