A Great New Museum


Last week I visited my 99th country: Qatar. The highlight for me was a marvellous new museum which despite only being open since December 2008, , must surely rank as one of the world's great museums. It is the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha. Designed by Chinese-American architect Leoh Ming Pei, it houses the biggest collection of Islamic art in the world.


  1. Your 99th country, wow and cool museum. I'm curious to know what the country of your choice will be for 100.

  2. I believe you when you talk about the world's great museum !!! I'ld like to visit it ! Leo Ming Pei is also the architect of the Louvre pyramid... ;)

  3. I think we are all curious about your 100th country!

  4. Oh wow! You're on your 99th country!! Well done. That second photo is exquisite!
