It should be illegal for some people to wear leggings without a girdle.
Leggings is just a cover up name for tights.
Leggings are fine under a dress.
What’s this, demanding guests in your country adhere to the local culture.....What a concept......How.......Racist.

Tourism in Qatar?
Only if Hell is overbooked!

“Tourism in Qatar?”

For ten bucks you can go into the first class lounge, where you can have ANYTHING you want to eat and drink for free.
That includes liquor and excellent wines. They also have Wi-Fi and even beds, if you want to sleep.
One of the most obnoxious words ever.
