Photos from Egypt – more about my trip to the country of the Pharaos

The top photo shows a new development area with mansions being build for (upper) middle class; a social group that seems to be growing in size. However, as the picture elsewhere in my blog http://www.clemenssuter.com shows, not everybody is benefiting from economic opportunities – which aren’t really marvelous: the Egyptian pound dropped in value by half (!) in 2016. The picture at the bottom shows travelers from many different origins at Kuwait airport. The plane to Cairo suffered terrible delays, I arrived in Cairo at 2am.

My trip to the #MiddleEast some photos from Qatar

Qatar borders on the Persian Gulf. First impressions:

It was VERY hot and unexpectedly humid. It was very tidy, modern, and the people that I met were extremely friendly.

Amazing nightly car trip in Qatar #MiddleEast

During my stay in the Middle East, I also visited Doha, capital of Qatar. This movie was made on my way from the airport to the hotel.

Doha is an amazing city, completely new and full of business; at the same time local people told me that it is very car-centric and that the recreational offers are negligible. As I was visiting on business with a calendar full of appointments I couldn’t really check whether this was true – perhaps some of you readers have a different experience to share.

The boycott by Saudi Arabia was in full swing, but it doesn’t seem to have affected the Qatari much. They even imported 4000 Friesian cows from Australia and put them in an air conditioned hall, to ensure sufficient milk can be produced, which was imported from Arabia up to now.
