The largest site in the world for foreign armies, and their place in the desert sun, and they found the young from the Balkans.
Qatar is the richest country in the world and it becomes clear already from the plane.
At first glance you see that it is a desert land. Everything is in a yellowish color, with no trace of green, and then, as you approach Doha, the capital, you're not sure if flying to America, England or any other rich Western countries - hundreds of skyscrapers, which are designed to compete in beauty, home with Arabic dump, the largest port with boats, pools ...

And, of course, all the green grass and palm oases. In Doha, even shower the sea and desert sand so make beautiful islands in the shape of pearl necklace. For them, of course, build something new again.
With football and hunters arrived on earnings
From the moment when Qatar won last year organizing the World Cup football here has flowed the whole world is eager to earn. At the same time property prices have doubled in Doha.
These states is the largest development in the world, where the build thousands of new skyscrapers, hotels, dozens of stadiums that will be adapted to this climate - due to high temperatures in summer and reaches 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Stadiums will be the first in the world, have air conditioning.

The first stadium in the world with air conditioning
For many the strongest hotel chains started to conquer the Sheraton, Hilton, Intercontinental are among the first to take place under the sun.
And Belgrade in Doha
And it seemed interesting to me is that I only open the hotel in which I stayed, St. Regis, at every step, hear our language.
After I find out here that employs more than 40 young people from our region, mainly from Belgrade. They managed to slip through here a new director who previously worked at the Belgrade Hyatt and now, when he moved to a new duty, retired and many of its former employees.
And the reason it is not just friendship, but it is a valuable and good receptionist, waiters, maids, restaurant boss. This had advantages for the wife and for me: one evening when we arrived, we recommended an excellent restaurant, where everything was filled. And then, when we, in our language course devised where we continue, our receptionist Sanja was heard, and just said 'there is room for you'.
The Doha Round has several shopping centers and the largest Villaggio (unfortunately, a few days after our visit there was a fire and 17 people died, including 12 children). This center has hundreds of top brand name stores, hockey stadium, amusement park and the main attraction is the water channel that runs through the whole center, and which drives the gondola.
Villaggio Shopping Center
However, I must say that I have this same shopping center, but exactly the same, copied, seen at The Venetian in Las Vegas. Obviously a lot of Sheik liked, so he simply said - "I want this." I was not wrong.
Taxes for foreigners
Katarani are, of course, rich people.There's not much, and get their citizenship is almost impossible. Qatar abundant large inventories of gas and oil. And the world's most famous for his powerful media company - Al Jazeera, which celebrated its constant struggle for ordinary people.
The natives are doing the very best jobs, and everything else is the work force from around the world. They even do not pay taxes, but only to the party.
This, and much other information, tell us the driver Ali, who was in Qatar came from Bangladesh. For the black, catches tourists in front of these centers, and offers them a tour of the city's sights in his vehicle.
It took us to the beautiful Pearl harbor, where their boats parked Katarani richest, but also some of the foreigners who are here to "temporary work".
We also visited the Museum of Islamic Art, where we could see many rarities of 12 century onwards, which are rich Katarani collected throughout the Islamic world from destruction and preserved.

But we also explained why the greeting Katarani touching noses - this is a special expression of intimacy and close friends are just so welcoming, while the children touch the nose to the forehead.
Gasoline half the price of water
Katarani on average four or five vehicles, class Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari ...
The sea beaches are, of course, sand, and different private and public. The public is not allowed to swim for women in bikinis.
What are the concerns and public warnings about the marine jellyfish, but we are staying for five days we did not, luckily met.
Food is abundant and diverse. There are restaurants from all over the world for everyone.We liked their fish, barley soup from a recipe from the 15th century, lamb legs that melt in your mouth and squeezed mango juice.
Spring water in Qatar there. Used processed from seawater. And this is a process that is not cheap at all.
Her taste is almost the same. But price is not - a liter of water costs two riyals, while a liter of gasoline was half the price, one Riyals - or 25 euro cents.
