At the Holiday Inn in Manama, definitely a step up from the previous night.

Some Indian expats playing cricket on Friday morning in Manama, Bahrain.

Al Fateh Grand Mosque, the largest mosque in Bahrain, and one of the biggest in the world. Unfortunately only Muslims are allowed inside in the weekend.

The King of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, in the centre, and the prime minister on the left and the crown prince on the right.

At the Bahrain National Museum. A really amazing place, had some really interesting exhibits, as well as this cool gallery of local artwork.

The famous Bahrain World Trade Centre Towers, with wind turbines in the middle

Bab Al Bahrain, or 'Gateway of Bahrain'. Built by the British in 1945, it used to be on the waterfront. With extensive land reclamation however, it is now ~500 metres from the sea.

At the Central Fruit & Vege markets.


And at the fish markets.
