Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture.

Our days here in Bahrain took a sad turn yesterday. My sister in laws maid had a phone call from Indonesia and was told that her husband had died from an electric shock. Just like that. Poor guy was only 35 years old. She was going to go home soon and he was busy preparing things (some electrical stuff) at home when it happened. So today she is going back.

Since our maid isn’t here either due to the fact that she doesn’t have her multiple exit re-entry visa yet, I have spent the day at home with the kids while the rest has been out helping the poor Indonesian girl to get hold of her papers so she can leave. It’s so much about papers, papers, papers down here…

In any case, I won’t be doing some of the things I planned to do here but I will… go to Dessange Spa tomorrow and get six hours of pampering. Sooo can’t wait.

And yes it is good to be here. Seeing women working in shops, driving cars, sitting and chilling in cafes and everywhere else. And no men aren’t as desperate here as in Saudi….
