Little about Qatar
To tell you a little more about the country, the Qataris mainly favour football and motorsports and in 2015 they held their first motocross championship. They have their main meal during the day. Even though, they are mostly meat and fish eaters, they balance out their meals with sufficient quantities of raw vegetables. Some forms of entertainment are available in the country, mainly Alladin’s Kingdom, amatuer diving for oysters, the floating museum, hill climbing, camping in the desert and the local market. Nightlife is virtually unheard of.
