Allahu Akbar and Eid Mubarak December 30, 2006Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture, Sweden.
So now he is dead. Saddam Hussein. If it was wrong or right to execute him I do not know but for sure he deserved a punishment for his crimes. His last words were apparantly Allahu Akbar. True indeed. Just wanted to make a note of this event and day. Strange day indeed to make such an execution. First day of Eid and the tv stations are showing so much footage and pictures of his life. In a way I guess it could be beneficial for us if we think about who he was and how we ourselves could improve our behaviour and living and another way it is not a very festive thing to see his evil and miserable face wherever we turn.
Eid Mubarak to you all. I wish you a great time with your friends and family. May God bless you all.
Our visa issue was solved shortly after I wrote the previous post. I love flexible countries (and no I am not talking bribes here ok). In Sweden if they say no to something then it’s no and no and no. Nooo way around it for sure. Here you talk to a guy who tells you about another guy (that is actually working) who says sure I can do that and voila you have solved your problem.
I’ts great to be here in Manama and I have a list of things I want to do before I go back. A visit to the souk is one of them. We have visited the cafe Don Vito two nights in a row and I find it to be a really cosy place with good food. Veranda and Aroma Cafe are two other place which are nice to just sit and chill in with an arghile, (not for me) some food and drinks. Just love the feeling of bei ng able to just chill. Something I haven’t been able to do in Khobar. It always feels like such an issue to go somewhere and once you have eaten you can’t just sit and chill (or can you??). Maybe someone can recommend a chill out place in Khobar or Dammam? And by the way, aren’t there any arghile places in Khobar?
