Let's face it, one of your least favourite things to do in Qatar is to drive. Some people think that indicating is an option, some people think it's alright to play connect the dots with cars while on the highway, and worse yet, some people think that turning left while they're on the far right lane is actually ok. In fact, it's YOUR fault for being in the way.

#QTip Time everyone! We know that this might be a big deal to everyone, but we wanted to save your floors from those dirty shoes.

In our culture, you typically take your shoes off at the door when entering a person's home or Majlis (unless the person tells you otherwise). 

We don't get how some people wear shoes while laying down on a sofa. That's just eww!

#QTip: Why do you hear drums banging? The Mesahar

You might have been woken up before the crack of drawn wondering why someone's banging drums outside.

That's actually someone doing a public service. He's usually walking around chanting and banging a drum to let people know that this is their last chance to eat before the crack of dawn. 

It's beautiful and sometimes you'll see younger kids following an elder and learning how it's done.
