Qatar and the World population

 The other day I was reading an interview with a Hungarian expert - it was on the world population ... is the world really overpopulated ? No -was the answer - it is not -  just to show how little is the number of the people on the Earth - he said that if we put all the people of the world next to each other then Borsod county would be enough for them . Borsod county is around the same size as Qatar . So just put all the people here in your mind .:)

BOOKRA  Tomorrow

  The present is grim : In Syria and Yemen civilians are killed daily  while the government attacks peaceful demonstrators ,residential areas and hospitals .Last week Saleh's tanks shelled the hospital of Taiz .

But the future will be bright ... at least this video suggests so .. life will be comfortable and modern while some Arab traditions will be preserved ... at least that was the message I understood with my poor Arabic and the pictures..

Shooting was made partly in Marocco and Qatar ...

People enjoying a day out at Mesaieed beach during the Eid weekend

this is a picture you should check out if you want to have an image on the public beaches in Qatar ..people in the beach means massive crowds of men

 though there is one single family beach in Katara - it is still not solution for women -as family beach means only that  single men are not allowed

   in this country there are ladies only sections in banks ,lifts etc .  where are the ladies only beaches ? if there are women who do not wish to mix with men even in the banks then sure there is a demand for beaches without men ...
