Day XII. Crib Notes For Qatar Traveler

The expedition to Qatar is over. For 12 days the expedition team studied the country and its culture.

“In Russia people prefer to eat peeled shrimps or lobsters. In Italy or in Asia people just won’t get it if you give them a shrimp even without a tail, and they prefer to keep the shell in place to discover the delish – it is part of the thrill for them. The same thing happens with Qatar. It is delicious inside, but not yet peeled. You need to make a little effort to get the taste. And this is a special joy. If you want everything to be ready – welcome the Emirates. And Qatar is the undiscovered pearl whcih you should defenetly visit.”

At this, Qatar EtHnoExp is officially completed.
