It was once again rather hazy and a light dust haze enveloped the sky but that did not deter us from our regular evening walk at the Arad Walkway. However, it was a rather surreal feeling as we took our stroll as these pictures show. I have earlier taken a lot of pictures here but never have they shown the area in such ‘splendour’ … Continue reading Eye Can See
I saw these workers toiling in the sun at a construction site next to my house this afternoon. This after I had just stepped out from a comfortable 20 degrees C into more than 35 degrees C, and in what is the beginning of another Bahrain summer. It’s amazing how these men work tirelessly with a smile on their faces, always ready to do that … Continue reading The heat is on

Three hundred and sixty-five days on, I have written or posted 395 blog posts, have raked up 12,765 hits and run up 2,262 followers. I have sure come a … Continue reading A year on…….

While it is not often surprising to see a few of them on the busy Shaikh Isa bin Salman Causeway, I found so many at the same time, and at that hour, unusual. “Oh, but it’s the weekend,” said one of them, when … Continue reading Midnight Anglers
The trash that we leave behind on our beaches and a lack of proper cleaning infrastructure seems to have caught up with this seagull as it took flight on Bahrain’s Busaiteen coast. While trying to ‘capture’ some of the birds that routinely make the coast their home in the evening, I ‘got’ this one with a string, possibly from a disused fishing line, attached to … Continue reading Trash the garbage
