Day 1: Heathrow to Doha

30 September 2007

Urban sketching in Qatar.

Heathrow airport

 First stage of the journey takes us to Doha, with its L-shaped city views. Old, low-rise buildings stretch along the coast toward a very modern development of skyscrapers and cranes.


You walk out of the airport into a wall of heat. It's too hot to walk anywhere, so I took the lift to the top floor of the hotel and drew the view back along the peninsula.
