Horrible, filthy, icky place - I just pray that I will never have to go and live there

Well the town I live in in the UK hasn't changed for 60 years. I think you might be exaggerating a tad...

True...it is far from a brilliant place to live in....BUT we Do have 3 very big malls....and The Centre is not a pokey supermarket, it has quite a few up market shops......Qatar is not Dubai,albeit aspiring to be, and never will be...but looking at how things are going in Dubai at the moment, I am glad I am not there.
Qatar is ,even now, a pretty safe bet.

Dubai may be down, but the game is still not over yet...

Oh, I am sure it is not, but here in Doha we are actually not feeling it as much as you people in Dubai.

The lucky ones, as in living in their own world and hence dealing with what ever may happen in their own way...we actually ARE in agreement...I think
