Sand skiing in Qatar
October 21, 2003

These pictures are from my sand skiing trip to the dunes an hour south of Doha, Qatar.
My wonderful guide and chauffeur for this trip was Nabeel Mirza with Alpha Tours.

4 days later I was skiing knee-deep powder in Austria!

The dunes go on forever. That's the Persian Gulf on the left. Click on the images for larger pictures.
