MORE NQR (Not Quite Right) BAHRAIN

My last NQR post was one of your favorites and I have had requests for more... I aim to please!

Like everything here, the following photos are a few more examples of NQR Bahrain.

I offered $10 on Facebook if someone could accurately tell me what this is, these are the responces:
Christy Flusche: The bathtub dumping station??? GROSS
Lauren Jeffrey: What is the Hick part of town for 200 Alex?
Bowen Novack: I'll take "Old Crap" for 500 Alex
Good Game Guys! However, no correct answers as of yet! ;)


This is a modern take on "squatting", men will set up tents like this anywhere they please. I wonder if their wives have sent them to their "Man Caves"? This one is down the street and around the corner from our villa in a vacant lot between two villas. In the evenings you can drive by and see them watching soccer on TV while lounging on floor pillows - STRANGE!


Is it just me or does it look like a tager got his hands on a sharpie? :)


GOOD NEWS: We have located your Household Goods Shipment!
BAD NEWS: Your boxes are on their way to Saudi Arabia in an UGLY truck!

A side profile of the tackiest truck on earth! I think this was the recipient of Bahrain's "Pimp My Ride"!

Geeeze, there's soooo much going on in this photo, where should I start... Please note the electric blue choice in paint, the "fancy" iron work on the truck caging, rub-on vinyl stickers claiming this vehicle is a "Mercedes Benz", the shiny heart charms on the bumper AND for the really-really blind... florescent yellow safety tape (because "IT BLENDS"!)


I think this sign reads: "This is where all the HOT girls shop!"

If you look real close you can see it looks like the eyes on the advertisement are cut out of a magazine and glued to the sign. The eyes are all looking in different directions. It's safe to say that they are not marketing geniuses.


A potty was left outside our neighborhood...

Jann giving the "Captain Morgan" pose...

The funny part of this picture is what you DON'T see! Paul said people were coming out of their villas to see me pose with the abandoned potty - You know they are saying to each other "Stupid Americans, There goes the neighborhood! (laugh!)


Will the real Mickey Mouse please stand up?


This resort is listed as a 4 star, are you sure these swings look safe?


MORE TO COME - There's no shortage of material like this!
