Doha 23rd International Book Fair

We visited the Book fair while it was in town.  Even though we have found that the selection isn't necessarily everything we want, it is still fun to see what there is to offer.  This year (2012), Japan & Qatar have been celebrating 40 years of friendship, so we were also interested in the display put on by the Japanese Embassy.  That was probably the highlight.  We had origami & calligraphy demonstrations, a Harajuku fashion show, and a really great couch to jump on while waiting and chatting with the representatives.

Leoni did like looking through "kids' books" at some of the vendors, but she wasn't too interested in these guys:
