Yesterday was Qatar National Day and having just won the World Cup in 2022, the country all went a bit crazy.
I’ve never seen so many flags in my life: on cars, on buildings, on lamp posts, and they’ve even put the bunting out in our compound!
And adults too!
Felipe has been trying to attack my dark red car with shaving foam to turn the whole thing into a giant flag. I was glad to be at work…with my car safely in the car park!
Around 7:30pm the traffic came to a stand-still
Stunning…but I have to say that I’m a a little disappointed that the giant 20m disco ball didn’t make more of an appearance. Maybe next year!
