Light Showers in Doha and the secrets of the desert truffles

silent rains in Doha and  the desert truffle

 The  weather is not as hot as it was last week .   The sky is covered with clouds and a few drops are  coming down from the sky .It is called  light shower here .
 I enjoy this weather very much .Yesterday while sitting outside we were watching the sunset with clouds  then  the round shaped moon with  white vales .

 I just told to myself : Had been living here for ten years and I still do not know how the desert truffle search is made in Qatar . In Europe it is made by the help of pigs - but as in the Muslim countries pig is considered as an unclean creature then it is impossible that it is the same way .

 Then I just came across this article . I learnt the secret .Go to the desert after rains . Look for the plant called desert sunflower . Then try to  draw a circle  with  one meter radius around the plant  . Then you have to dig from five to ten centimeters  and you might be the lucky one who will find the truffles . They sell it 3000  Qatari rial a kilo . It is in February and March when you  find the most  .Especially in the North .

  Read this if you want to find out why it is a good idea to sell  truffles in Qatar !
