    Many Facets of Qatar


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MyAdventures loved visiting the markets in Qatar. Her favorite thing? The spices! "I love to cook and the spices add to the flavor. It was exciting to find new spices and how to cook with them," she said.
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    Qatar is a place with many modern attractions/buildings, but still has that old world charm.
    Qatar has large beautiful malls that offer moderate to high end shopping, indoor ice skating, a ride in a gondola, and more. While visiting, I had the opportunity of shopping in the old souks. These are old markets where you can barter with the shop keepers. You will find everything from clothing to spices.
    Smell the aroma of fresh spices, see the beauty in the old lanterns, taste the humus, a fresh date, kabobs, or many of the other dishes. Afterwards relax, taste and smell the Hookah aroma in the air.
    While I may be partial to shopping, there are many other things to see and do in Qatar. Visit a museum, take a ride out on a boat, ride the dunes, swim in the clear aqua colored gulf, ride a camel or as I prefer, shop for pearls, or that special piece of jewelry. The people are friendly and are modernizing more every day.
