Expat exploits in Qatar

Room with a view

The view from our bedroom looks down across the C Ring Road to the Corniche and beyond to West Bay. You can see exactly what I see in the photo at the top of the page.

When we moved in we expected to see a building gradually appear centre-right. The footings were there, and the beginnings of uprights to support the structure. In the middle of the site stood an orange crane. On windy days the crane swung round in line with the wind direction. We hoped the building would not be tall and obscure our view.
Three years later nothing has been built. Recently the crane disappeared. I’m not sure exactly when. It must have been a sizeable task to dismantle. One day I looked out and our crane was gone. I’m guessing that our view is now safe for the time being.
