Default Intro to all

Hi All,

I'm new visiting and trying to get a feel of this place, hows everyone adapting?
i have been offered a good pay with 11 years experience under my belt as an engineer, but $$ isn't everything to me, happiness is. Does anyone here ever ask themselves "what the hell am i doing here"?

The 'vibe' in Doha is the result of people shaking with frustration at the stupid and beligerent actions of the arrogant locals. Add that to humidity and a small minded population, and you have Qatar, where you can sometimes have a drink to calm things down. If Qatar went 'dry', the place would be a ghost town very quickly. It is a shit-hole with no redeeming features populated by dolts with an unearned sense of entitlement. Other than that, it beats Saudi, but so does Tehran....
