One Day in Qatar

Happy New Year Everyone!!! I had a great vacation. I was able to see 4 countries on this visit (sort of 5- if I include stopping over in Amsterdam, Netherlands).

I spend a day in Doha Qatar, then went to South Africa (Johannesburg and Cape Town), followed by Malawi (Chikwawa, Blantyre, Lilongwe) and finished off in Tanzania (Zanzibar).

I am trying to do much better in providing pictures, videos and details of my trips. So enjoy my first video documenting my day in Qatar.

Let me know your thoughts!!
