Journey to Saudi and Bahrain #3

It's been a while since I've updated, I know it. I had a very bad computer problem which made my pictures difficult to access. Thanks, Windows 8!

Anyway, after the conference I had a free day to explore Bahrain, the world's smallest Arab country. I managed to arrange a guide for it.

One of the first places I went was to the Al-Fateh Mosque, which is the largest house of worship in the country. It's not very old, having been built in 1987, and it supposedly has the world's largest fiberglass dome.

After that, we visited Bahrain Fort from which you can get a decent view of the skyline of Manama, the capital.

I also had a chance to go to a tea house in the old section of Muharraq, Bahrain's 3rd largest city. I think I enjoyed this bit the most.
