The day started with a parade in tribute to the military of Qatar. The boys loved this display and Tim marveled that a small country would have so many machines. Army tanks, Special Forces boats, K9 team, Amiri Guard, Air Fighter jets, Hazardous Material Unit, Mobile Hospital. We saw it all. The parade was jam-packed for a full hour.
Here are some of our favourite sights.

And of course, there were the usual cars painted to look like a flag cruising the Corniche with people standing on the roof. This is very scary to watch because of the speeds that the cars are traveling. This year the police seemed to be discouraging this tradition.
