Get your mind out of the Qatar, 5: Al Wakrah

Al Wakrah is a smaller city to the south of Doha that is rapidly being swallowed up by the Doha metropolis as Doha expands.

We took a dip in the Persian Gulf, or as they call it there, the Arabian Gulf (not to be confused with the Arabian Sea). Apparently this is quite sensitive. We saw one map that tried to finesse it by calling it simply "The Gulf", and another that split the difference by drawing a line down the middle and calling one side the Persian Gulf and the other side the Arabian Gulf.

Ok, not really a dip. We walked in pretty far, and the water never went above our ankles.

Was this SUV shooting a commercial?
