+How can I see the raw SQL queries Django is running?
+----------------------------------------------------
+
+Make sure your Django ``DEBUG`` setting is set to ``True``. Then, just do
+this::
+
+ >>> from django.core.db import db
+ >>> db.queries
+ [{'sql': 'SELECT polls_polls.id,polls_polls.question,polls_polls.pub_date FROM polls_polls',
+ 'time': '0.002'}]
+
+``db.queries`` is only available if ``DEBUG`` is ``True``. It's a list of
+dictionaries in order of query execution. Each dictionary has the following::
+
+ ``sql`` -- The raw SQL statement
+ ``time`` -- How long the statement took to execute, in seconds.
