On a beautiful mild day in mid-February, I met with a group of high-level museum professionals from Hong Kong and members of Qatar Museums Conservation team at the unique Museum of Islamic Art Park cafe. A lively bunch, they exuded enthusiasm and excitement to be here, the first such delegation to visit Qatar and indeed, the Arab world.
