Manama, Bahrain

We took the shuttle bus [€5 per person] into Manama. Drop off at the Main Post Office in the city; this is convenient for all the souks.
Most photos are taken from the coach with filthy windows, so some reflections. A sand storm blew up, so visibility, especially on the way back to port, was very poor. On disembarking we were offered very tasty Arabian pastries.. do try some if you get a chance. An interesting mix of old and new buildings, not the construction site of the UAE, although there are new high rises going up.
