You probably noticed that older women typically wear a Batoola. It's this gold mask that protects the face. But did you ever wonder why they wear it and why it's shiny gold?

These days it's not as common as before but it's definitely something unique about our culture.

Why do we carry swords? Are you serious? They're awesome! It makes you feel like you've gone back in time and ready to play Ali Baba. But seriously Hamad explains a bit about the history, sword dancing, and how safe they are.

To demonstrate how safe they are, TheQatariGuy slices Mr. Q's arm!!

Don't have a sword? You can still dance, but with your arm.

Aisha's back and this time she's talking about the evolution of the Abaya. The Abaya is a unique piece of clothing. This soft and flowing gown is both worn for religious purposes (to be loose fitting) and also as a fashion statement.

Many people agree that that it looks elegant, some say that the colorful ones make women look like Princesses. 

Abayas can also vary in price. From as low as 200 riyals (for a good one) to 10,000 Riyals for a luxurious one!

Oh yes, it's that magic number 3 again. This time we thought you'd like to know a bit more about hospitality. Traditionally, when a guest is visiting from a foreign country, the right thing to do is ensure that they're taken care of, no questions asked, for 3 days. Guests get shelter, food, and comfort.
