The hole store

20141027_173837This newspaper and magazine shop, operating virtually out of a hole in the wall in Bahrain’s Muharraq area, is a favourite with Asian, particularly Indian, expatriates, who are able to buy, and browse, publications in many languages. Malayalam, Tamil, Gujarati and even Punjabi, are the most sought after and sellers make a neat packet selling these on hefty premiums. But, again, no price is too much for those who love to read!

    It is good to see the pictures you shoot and it is better to read the stories behind these pictures.

        Yes, I think anyone can capture a beautiful sunset but very few see the beauty in everyday things.

    There are many shops like this in New York City – we call them little “holes in the wall”. Often these places have the best food or merchandise around! And generally the shopkeepers are very friendly and helpful.

      There are several such places in the old parts but nothing very fancy is available there, mostly old books and magazines and sometimes everyday needs – kind of convenience stores!
