I am in Qatar! I love it a lot and I love it a little. I live in the city of Doha. Me, my mom, and my dad are living here for a year while my dad teaches at VCUQ. In Qatar the ladies wear something that is called a shayla that covers up their heads. And what they wear for clothes is an abaya. An abaya is like a coat except it goes all the way down to your feet and you zip it up. It is usually black. The men in Qatar wear something that is called a thobe. A thobe is kind of like an abaya except it is white and it has a few buttons.
Arabs are not Christians. They are Muslims. So they don't celebrate Christmas. They celebrate Eid. When I first came to Qatar, I felt so very jet lagged. Then after a few months I started getting used to it.
What I like about Qatar is that the gas prices aren't as high as they are in Utah. And you don't have to wear coats usually.
I will write more later about my adventures here in Doha.
