The sun had set hours ago, but the humidity still hung in the air. “They say they know how to treat a woman.” She leaned in and whispered: “And apparently they are incredibly…” And here she made a whistling noise. Walking back from a takeaway shop at one point, we had dared to hold hands briefly, in a dark alleyway where there was no one in sight.
Well, I implore you to try meeting people in the Middle East. I quickly learned that there were only really two ways of meeting people in Doha, with the end game of forming romantic relationships.
