I spent an hour sitting in my living room balcony last night, just looking at the traffic pass by. Then I looked at the lights in the several skyscrapers around me. And that’s when I got the camera. Every window seems to have a story to tell and so does the traffic. The makeshift weekend parking lot adjoining a construction site tells a tale of its own!
The weather’s turned nasty. Cold, windy and dusty. Unhealthy, in other words. This is usual during what we call the winter here in Bahrain. But when it begins, it hurts as if it’s the first time it’s happened!
This is the view this evening from my living room window and it’s now gotten worse, with the wind howling like a banshee. It surely is going to get worse, before it turns better!
We visit the fishmongers in Manama once a month. And this gentleman, from Bangladesh, keeps the choicest catch ready, cleaned and packed for use as we reach.
He is also up to date with technology, liberally using WhatsApp and Instagram for marketing, sending out messages and pictures to customers, who can then decide what they want.
The best part, however, is we can pick up the ‘consignment’ as we pass the shop, not bothering to find a parking spot in the normally congested lanes.
How times have changed!
