another mall with another ice-rink













old souk area



PS: Qatar´s pace of development is "slow" and moderated when you compare it to that of the UAE and Dubai in particular but it is huge when you compare Qatar from the mid 90´s with today. Qatar was among the Gulf´s latest countries that has undergone urban modernization.

O espetáculo do petróleo!



Doha é impressionante, dá até para tirar a atenção de Dubai.

Acho que mais uns 30 anos todo o golfo vai ter ilhas artificiais com dezenas de quilômetros distantes da costa. O chique é viver longe da poeira horrível que existe no continente.

Esses pequenos países do Golfo perceberam que o dinheiro do petróleo não vai durar por mto mais tempo, e estão partindo pra ser a rota do turismo de altíssimo luxo, qta mudando em 50 anos.
Which countries are you alluding to, be more precise?


Kuwait has oild for more than 100 years

The UAE (Dubai is part of it) has oil for more than 100 years!

Qatar has gas resseves the third largest in the world (for 300 years!!!)

They only country whose oil runs dry is Bahrain!

Qatar takes foot off the gas

* Last Updated: May 24. 2008 10:09PM UAE / May 24. 2008 6:09PM GMT

An enviable position: Last year, Qatar’s 17 per cent share of worldwide liquefied natural gas sales put it comfortably ahead of the number two producer, Malaysia, with its 13 per cent market share. Now it is deciding the best strategy for production. AP

Qatar has a problem that its neighbours would love to be facing: the tiny Gulf nation is trying to figure out how to keep pumping gas from the world’s biggest field for at least the next 100 years.


According to official figures, Qatar’s proved natural gas reserves exceed 900 trillion cubic feet (tcf), 14 per cent of the world’s total. Almost all are located in the offshore North Field, which comprises roughly 65 per cent of an even larger deposit that Qatar shares with Iran.

Even with a forecast doubling of production in the next four years, the reserves should last for at least 120 years. That takes into account an accelerated schedule for increasing annual exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to 77 million tonnes (mt) from their current level of 31 mt, the recent start of two billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) of exports by pipeline to the UAE and Oman, and rising domestic consumption due to thriving electricity and petrochemicals sectors.

Qatar seems to have gas for all those commitments and more. International energy companies have also recently bid enthusiastically on new concessions that are likely to add new reserves. By the end of this year, Qatar’s gas reserves could approach 920 tcf, the Global Investment House, a Kuwaiti bank, predicted in a research report this month.

Deus do céu. É impressionante ver como o skyline se desenvolveu em pouco tempo, como mostram as ultimas fotos. Imagine se pudessemos, em 5 anos, ver skyscrappers belíssimos como esses em São Paulo.

A arquitectura recente faz muito lembrar a do Dubai, mas talvez com um pouco mais de sentido estético, já que no Dubai o objectivo é a quantidade e por vezes a qualidade é posta de parte. Quanto a isso, o Quatar está 5*****
Já no resto, é a mesma ambição e parolice do costume, ilhas artificiais, extensões intermináveis de campos de golfe, demasiados escritórios e complexos turisticos/residenciais sem ninguém para atribuir.... Todo este crescimento desnecessário faz destas cidades ambientalmente insopurtáveis.

I am very happy to see NON-WESTERN countries advance. Those countries are incredibly rich and grow richer and richer by day. The UAE has the lagest oil state fund in the world which averages close $1 TRILLION . I have read that all state funds in the Middle East will average close to $20 TRILLION by 2025. This money will go into Western companies. Militarily the Western World will staty number one but they will get a big financial counterweight coming out of the so-called "poor" and "backward" countries/world. Categories that have fused into the social psyche of the countries.

if all this continues, I do hope that it will break the neck of some of today´s rich and mighty countries.

The 21 century era will no longer be that of the USA, Canada, Australia and Europe but others countries like China, Brazil, India , Gulf Arab countries and hopefully (parts) of Africa will build a counterweight to the dominance of the arrogant Western world that can only dictate (whyt they did for centuries) to the others. I am yearning to see this.

it will be a long and silent struggle but it has already begun. The next 50-100 years will no longer be the century of America and Europe. Time will give justice to the "oppressed".
