Doha Day 7

Did you know that in Australia if you run a red light it’s $150 fine.
Here in Qatar it’s a QR6000 ($2800) fine.

Insane. My friend has gotten a few. I told him he should have not gone through all those red lights, because he can fly to Australia and back for cheaper than one of them.

Dick.

Last night I saw a brutal accident. A car got totalled by a 4wd. The tower of smoke pumped for ages into the dark arabic sky from the battered bonnet of the sedan. The ambulance arrived. We had to move along.

Life is so fragile. Make it count.
