There's a lot to see in downtown Doha, and last week I saw some interesting things that were a complete surprise. Once again I brought the Togatta kokeshi along for the trip.
Right next to the Falcon Souk is a large, beautiful horse stable. I'm not sure why it's located where it is -- perhaps they're the Qatari Emir's horses? Anyhow, it's freely open to the public, and so I introduced the kokeshi to a couple of nice Arabian horses.
And so ends another exiting Kokeshi Adventure in the wonderful country of Qatar.
|Kokeshis are welcome everywhere in Qatar too.|
|This handsome building is the Falcon Souk.|
|Inside the Falcon Souk -- a very handsome building indeed.|
|Some falcons. I asked if I could take this picture and it was no problem. I have found that nobody minds that I'm constantly taking pictures of things.|
|Outside another falcon shop.|
|The stable's exterior.|
|Inside the stable.|
|Behind the stable is Doha's Grand Mosque, which is lit up beautifully at night.|
|This other building may have been the Emir's palace, or perhaps parliament. I'm not sure, but it was nicely lit up.|
