The heat is on

DSC_8236DSC_8240I 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 much more to get work done on time.  I often also wonder what we would do without the skills, ability and perseverance of these mostly South Asian workers, who are thousands of miles away from their families, only to make sure folks back home can live a decent life and look forward to the monthly remittance. Hat’s of to these heroes!
