Did You Know?

Bahrain is the only island nation in the Middle East. The country actually is an archipelago of 33 islands, of which Bahrain is the largest.

Here comes the night: It's getting late by now, but I am determined to complete this virtual round-the-clock Bahrain tour. My next stop has to be a visit to one of Bahrain's clubs to experience the country's famous nightlife. I head for the Elite Hotel and even as I approach, I can hear Arabic pop music emanating from the hotel's nightclub.

Inside, it is a real fun atmosphere with a group of exceptionally attractive young women singing and dancing for an appreciative audience. Considering that the singers are from the former Soviet republic of Belarus and had to learn the local pop music, I thought their talent seemed all the more commendable. I am pleased that they are willing for me to photograph their routine.

Time for a final stop at Barnaby Joe's, one of Bahrain's best known discotheques. Better known by its abbreviation BJ's, this is a disco that would sit well anywhere in the West. Not that I am an expert by any means on discos but with a huge dance floor plus a second floor gallery running around three sides, BJ's makes a great night out for young Bahrainis as well as expats. A fast film in my camera and flash combined with the flashing lights of the disco completes my photography of virtually 24 hours of a very interesting day in Bahrain.

I guess I could have gone back to my apartment via the illuminated Pearl Monument to give it a farewell wave but by now sleep beckons and I leave the disco happy that a good day's work - yes it is work although at times I must say it becomes sheer pleasure as well - is now complete.
