What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Qatar?
We asked people in Qatar if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!:

"Yes, when I turned and suddenly saw a women covered in an abaya and I nearly screamed. It took me some time to get used to the women in black,"
said another expat in Doha.
"I have a habit of calling everyone 'Darling', it didn't sit right with one of my English students..a high ranking officer in the army,"
remarked another expat who made the move to Doha.
