Manama, Bahrain December 4, 2022
I felt normal this morning, thank goodness so headed to the souq-
I love the spice shops-
The dresses are very ornate-
and the embroidery is done in the shop-
There are furniture shops-
Next we walked around looking at some of the amazing architecture such as the Bahrain Financial Harbour building-
We went to a restaurant promoted by Lying Planet and it was awful. I did however like how they were baking their bread. First, the ball of dough was flattened and shaped on a mould-
Then he threw it into the oven and it clung to the side-
Once cooked, which only took a few seconds, he pulled it out with a hook and threw it into the bread basket-
We caught an Uber home and I spent awhile by the pool-
During happy hour, I had a couple beer in the “last chance saloon” as there will be no alcohol in Kuwait or Saudi - nothing until December 31!
We have an 8:30 departure as we head back to Saudi to bush camp before heading into Kuwait the next day.
