Bahrain weekend November 2, 2006Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia.
Yesterday we got our iqamas and exit and re-entry visas so today we are off to Bahrain for the weekend which starts here today Thursday. People go back to work Saturday morning. My mind is still not used to this idea so the weeks feel a lil odd still. As if we have two weekends somehow. Anyway, today we are off to Bahrain which is about 45 min from here by car. There is a bridge connecting Bahrain to Saudi Arabia and many, many Saudis go there for fun during the weekends. Most of the things forbidden here are to be found in Bahrain so it´s a place both Saudis and expats are drawn to. We on the other hand are going there (this time) to visit some close relatives which we haven´t seen for quite some time. Feels odd though, not having to wear my abaya..
Will try to take some pics. A wicked weekend to all you sweet people out there.
