Bahrain Photo Essay

** I must start this week’s #FridayFotos Photo Essay with an apology. Ammon and his lovely girlfriend Sasha, arrived this week in Holland from Canada for a short four day visit on their way to Spain for three weeks. I’ve been distracted by kisses in the tulip fields, Unesco Sites, giant dams and quaint Dutch villages. Thus, I was late with posting this week!!!! Today’s photo essay is BAHRAIN, courtesy of Ammon. In 2007, when Mom, Bree and I had temporarily flown home to Canada from our grand backpacking adventure, Ammon continued onwards and explored the Middle East. I think I speak for all of us when I say I regret not being there with him. Bahrain is another one of those tiny, overlooked island countries, the smallest country in the Middle East, that I would love to visit if I’m ever in the neighbourhood! **

The Sail Monument is dedicated to one of Bahrain’s most important industries, pearl diving. The monument is of two huge dhow sails that look like two shells twisting around a pearl. It is especially beautiful at night when it is lit.
