Doha, a city of serious wealth and sparse population. Until relatively recently this was a desert state with a few fishing villages, but the country is now on a mission. It's said that there's under 1 million indiginous people in all of Qatar, but all with a shed load of cash from oil. So, what to do with it all? Build a city that's what. And the scale of development is truly amazing. Reports of over US$200 billion ongoing construction investment in many various projects, all in the hope that the world will withstand the searing summer heat and move there to conduct their business. We'll see.
