Adventures in Geography: Qatar



Qatar is new on my page views list today. I wanted to learn about it because it has a pretty name and it is so small it doesn't show up on my map. It is a small country bordered by Saudi Arabia

Qatar is considered the richest country in the world. It has a lot of oil and natural gas reserves It has a population of around 1.7 million people. The capital city of Doha is where most people in the country live. The mix of Arabic and modern buildings in this city is an amazing style that wows me.

It has a really interesting history. It has been governed by the Ottoman's and Great Britain and been part of The UAE. Since 1971 it has been it's own country and the same family have been rulers of it since the 1860's.

This was a really great country to learn about. I am glad someone there read my blog today.
