Night and Day, Doha, The Pearl

Visiting Doha, AdventureMan took me out to see the new Pearl going up. AdventureMan cracks up – “It’s NOT reclaimed land” he cackles, “they are demolishing old buildings at an incredible rate, and using all that rubble to build this new crop of hotels and residences!”

We watched it when it was just cranes and sandbars.

They’ve come a long way in an amazingly short time. This is the Doha Pearl (they are having the same kind of dusty weather that we are having in Kuwait)

The window is a little cloudy, but you can see it is all lights, camera, action at the building of The Pearl, even at night:
