More NQR (Not Quite Right) from Bahrain

Some of you come to my blog just for NQR. It's been entirely way too long since I have posted some of the crazy things I have captured on film.

Enjoy friends!

"Roads? Where we're going... we don't NEED roads!"

A little dressed up to be a food delivery guy, right?

I'm a little confused, is this car "FOR SAL" or "FOR SALE"?

Is an anatomically correct baby doll really THAT necessary?

Anybody want to go to McDonald's for a "highest quality" McArabia sandwich?

The "great" thing about housing in Bahrain is that when your family outgrows their home you can just buy some cinderblocks and add on a whole new story. (Check out the AWESOME pulley system on the right of the pic that this guy has rigged up - CLASIC!!!)

Introducing the all new CRV Jeep by Honda!

Is it just me... people shouldn't live in a place where it's SOOO hot & humid that their camera fogs up at 6:30AM!

WOW! Now THAT'S just the look I was going for in my living room. Is it the abstract shape of the couch? The obnoxiously bright color pallet? Maybe the cow print on the pillows? Plastic Gerber daisies? The floral carpet? NO, it's ALL that!

As opposed to the deli for NON-food stuff.

Secure in his masculinity...

The other day it took 2 hours to cross a one mile bridge. This man changing his own time in the middle of the highway is precisely the reason why.

I know you've seen this in a prior blog post but... Let's hear it for Bahraini plumbing.

NOW let's hear it for the supplies the plumbers brought to fix their screw up.

Freshly shucked corn... Mmmm delicious? Straight to the trashcan.

The with-child Happy Family, Clara doll.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...
Could this doll be teaching inaccurate sex ed?

I DO however like the "New Mom Essentials" that the Clara doll comes with... because EVERY new Mom needs binoculars, sunglasses AND a flask!

This guy has the market on cleaning supplies... "CLOROX, CLOROX, GET YOUR CLOROX HERE!"

His neighbor has clearly learned the VALUABLE lesson of diversifying... because EVERYBODY likes the idea of one stop shopping for 10 gallon drums of cleaning chemicals AND fresh shrimp! BRILLIANT! ;)

This guy is SOOOOO proud of his bus he wants EVERYBODY to see it coming! I don't know what I like best, the colors of paint he selected or his beaded window skirt proclaiming his TRUE and undying love for India!

Hope you had a good chuckle, I love sharing the things I find here that keep me giggling. I love Bahrain! (Maybe I should broadcast it with a skirt on my front windshield! LAUGH)
