Tanks for the information

Very good pictures

These are important for my study about Qatar´s architecture

awkhan thank you dear, thank you very much for such a nice pictures. just I got it to day.

... looks much as I remember from when I first arrived in the 80s. The whole place was not much bigger than the current 1st class building and the car park could hold around 30 cars!

Did you Google it first?

That was long b4 when more qatari's were riding on camel back rather than land cruisers, mercs & bmw's

Doha has come a long way indeed!

with you Baldrick. Even Peacock would agree. In those days you could actually see into the customs inspection area.

nice pics!!!!!!

When we see these pictures, let us think about our selves, What we are NOW, What we were before, and What we hope to be later, Realy they are very nice pictures
