I am actually in Tokyo now, but wanted post this one as I have been playing with youtube for a couple of days now and posted a clip from my Qatar trip.
I was in Qatar couple of years back for a very short visit and the highlight of the visit was the desert safari. We engaged gulf-adventures, who took on this half-a-day desert safari close to the Saudi border. These guys were expert drivers and knew the terrain well.
Here are a few photos and a small clip from that trip.
Down hill on a sand dune
plowing through the desert wilderness
Spotted this Lamborghini in the hotel lobby
More photos in flickr
Here some clips we took..
Very interesting video on SUV driving in sand at such a speed. Is the tyre inflated to the same air pressure as we do for regular road driving?ReplyDelete
They 'deflate' the tyres before embarking on these 'stunts'.... and then 'inflate' again when they are ready to hit the road..
Also, I must say these guys are 'professional' drivers and know what they are doing.. So 'Don't try this at home' warning would be appropriate..
Lamborghini looks awesome!ReplyDelete
Going Tokyo, looking Quatar,uh ?ReplyDelete
Yes.. it turned many eyes..
I was playing youtube for Chinmayi post.. Qatar clips were the test cases..hence the Qatar post..
