Game On!

IMG_0176 IMG_0180Hundreds of while collar expatriate workers, mostly from Bangladesh, converge at the well-known ‘Bangali Galli’ (the street of the Bengali’s) in Bahrain’s Muharraq district every weekend to spend quality time together.
They get together not only to exchange notes over the week gone by but also play games, the most popular being carom and cards.
The whole area is a splash of colour and a beehive of activity with a casual visitor like me not even sure he’s in Bahrain!There are similar gathering spots all over Bahrain where these workers get together, so that they do not have to travel far from where they stay!
