Blogging in Bahrain
And liking it!
Well now that I finally have some time at hand, and some idle time too, the devil has opened up workshop in this idle mind. And thanks to modern times, there is a quick and easy way to let out these works from the workshop - THE BLOG!
I have enough time now to forward forwarded emails to friends. Even those that say "forward to 5 people in 5 minutes for good luck in 5 hours"
Well the only good luck I had was two Mallu men make our apartment sparkling clean! Which is quite some luck given the fact that till last week I used to cook and clean and wash and fold and dust and tend to baby all by myself all day long...and go to work too! Well that was the US, land of the consumeristic and the individualistic beings. But this is Bahrain! The sun is always out, there are always people on the streets, kids are free to run around and yell without causing trauma to anyone, there are lots of kids, diapers can be changed anywhere (there is an incident I will narrate about this), apartments are huge, curtains (not blinds) are always drawn because the natural light is too bright...I could go on and on about the differences in the look and feel and cultures of the two nations.
But its time to call it a day and get some sleep now.
Need to get up early!
Till the next post,
Take care and God bless,
Sanu and her mom
