Today we have finally been to The Pearl. The Pearl (http://www.thepearlqatar.com/) is an artificial peninsula - very much like The World in Dubai - situated around 20 km north of downtown Doha. It is still under construction, so there were almost more cranes to see than ready buildings:-).
The view is unbelievable and the luxury is unspeakable! Almost all the famous designers has at least one shop there, the most luxurious cars and appartments are there at one place. Although not every cafés and shops are open yet, and not every penthous appartment buildings are ready yet, you can easily imagine where it leads to.
We were surprised tough, how few people there were!!? I mean it's not a finished project, but there is already a lot to see! It's incredible how people would rather spend the day in an airconditioned shopping mall than out in the sun in such an environment, and it wasn't even that hot today (max. 30 degrees)... We should grab the chance to be outside, because in a couple of months it will be impossible!
Well, it was a lovely day... Soffi enjoyed it and so did we...
