Peaceful little Qatar has, due to increasing oil and gas revenues, in a very short time grown into one of the wealthiest countries in the world. How is every-day-life for the people of Qatar? In this book you get the stories from some of the many different expats who have chosen to settle and work here as well as interviews with three local Qataris. Interviews and the author´s seven years experience in Doha constitute the foundation of this documentary book. The book is an update and a translation of my Danish book: Medvind i ørkenen - beretninger fra Qatar published in 2011.
