Exploring Doha: The Corniche - Fishing Harbour

There you are again!  Yesterday, we have started the exploring in this infamous destination in Doha - The Corniche. Let's explore the Fishing Harbour this time.

The Fishing Harbour gives a glimpse of an industry that's been a feature of the Qatar economy since the prehistoric Ubaid era. This is still an industry today in the present age of oil and gas.

We saw daily fish and crab catch being unloaded early morning today along the harbour wall where fishing boats are moored side by side. The fishermen were having a nice chat with each other as they work.

Oh look at what's inside - 100% trash tsk
Okay - let's buy some fish!
accurate measurement during the primitive ages
got a good bargain anyways!

Is it obvious that we love this side of the Corniche? It was good exploring fun - not to mention what we had for lunch today.

Hope to walk with you again!
