National Day Fireworks at The Pearl, Doha, Qatar

Yesterday I experienced another Doha first – National Day (December 18th).

It wasn’t a completely alien concept having experienced UAE National Day more than once, but from what I can gather the busy roads, jubilant atmosphere and general craziness of Dubai pales in to insignificance in comparison to Qatari National Day. Luckily for me, the lovely folks at The Pearl put on a pretty damn impressive display (actually, two – on 17th and 18th), and we are fortunate to have a balcony that gave us front row seats.

Over the last 5 years we’ve been completely spoiled when it comes to firework displays, it’s going to be a bit of a come down when we do eventually move back to the UK (okay, so we weren’t at the London Olympics opening ceremony, but still).
