Doha – first impressions

Well I’ve only been here a few hours. But in that time, I’ve meet people from Qatar, Palestine, Yemen and Greece and started already to have conversations that will change the way I see the world forever. I have a few photos and videos – but they will have to wait until tomorrow. But I have had some very interesting chats with people involved in the Athens Olympics – and it is fair to say that the issues we face in the UK in the lead up to 2012 are similar to those felt all over the world – wherever the Olympics are held. It was encouraging and in some ways heartening to hear about how other countries cope in the lead up, during and after holding an Olympic Games.

Doha is a very beautiful city with lots of obvious promise and building works going on across the city that I imagine will make it a place to visit again and again.
