The third installment of NQR (Not Quite Right) BAHRAIN

Back by popular demand...

This shot cracks me up because it's like a comical version of the 1970's TV show "CHIPS". Get 'em Ponch!

Is it just me or would this sight freak you out a little. This was the 6th Bahraini armored vehicle I saw in less than a mile and there were more on the corner when I turned. The picture was taken at the fence that surrounds the airport, I can't believe I was brave (or stupid) enough to take the picture. Guess some "big wig" was arriving in Bahrain.

We don't get snow storms here, NOT EVEN CLOSE! We DO however get sand storms. Check out the 8-10" sand drifts on the highway!

Yeah, that's right you read the thermometer correctly... 132 degrees in our courtyard! (Thank you Meredith for the AWESOME thermometer, we're curious at what temperature do you think the little boy strips down to his skin... it must be 135! wink-wink!)

Yes Boys & Girls that's an EX Saloon. For a nearly "dry" country they sure do name a lot of things after "saloons" ;)

OK, keeping on the Saloon theme... Do you think this is where all the HOT ASTRONAUT CHICKS get their hair done and their drink on? I'm just wondering.

I'm still a little confused on this one. McDonald's sells the Mc Arabia "sandwich" but now it features SALSA! What's going on here, are they trying out the "cross-cultural marketing plan" or what? NOTHING about that sandwich seems appealing to me, I don't care how much salsa you poor on it!! I'll stick to the Quarterpounder if I you MAKE me eat there, thank you very much!

This is the entrance to a nightclub. It looks a little shady if you ask me. Taner however is sticking to his assumption that Batman lives there and he only comes out at night. Yeah, OK I'll take that too.

I received this bag at the souqs when I purchased something a few weeks ago. QUESTION: do you think the shop owner REQUESTED the "blood-dripping-gorry-Halloween" font OR do you think he got them for free because they ROYALLY screwed up his order? AND do you think he wanted it to read "Welcome" or perhaps "Thank you"? Hmmmm... Your guess is a good as mine!

This shot was snapped by my oldest son on the way to school, he said "Mommy hurry! Hand me your camera, I spy a man on top of a trash truck, Hurry Mommy before he gets down!!!!! HURRY!!!" Good shot Tanner!

Hope you enjoyed the third installment of NQR (Not Quite Right) Bahrain... I'm sure there will be more to come! ;)
