After a pleasant lunch filled with intelligent conversation and the drunken shenanigans of a 40th birthday party for a British expat in the background, we said goodbye to our friends (new and old). We had planned to meet up with some house mates at the mall for dinner and a movie.
The drive from the restaurant to the mall didn't quite go as planned...
Before going to Bahrain, we were told by co-workers, "It's totally safe, just avoid the Pearl roundabout and you'll be fine!"
So what do we do? Of course, the protests are completely peaceful now, so we were never in any danger, but it certainly got very claustrophobic as the crowd got larger and the lane got smaller.
After everything cleared, we had a good laugh about it...

(a) toll roads
(b) traffic congestion
(c) revolutionary demonstrations.
Hey, look, you went on this adventure to experience the culture, if that includes a revolution, it's part of the experience, right?Since we're seeing video after the fact and you are safe and sound, I laughed right along with Amber. Did you get to see "The King's Speech" by the way? Wasn't it great?ReplyDelete
