Many people are surprised when I tell them that I need a permit to buy alcohol in Qatar. Anyone who wants a permit has to obtain a no-objection letter from her employer, staying her salary, which allows her to get a permit to purchase alcohol from the single distribution center in the entire country. There’s also a limit (a generous one) to how much I may purchase in a month (related to my salary). Just a nugget for those who didn’t realize. #22days #dohacountdown
