Hanging Out in Bahrain!

This shot was taken at down town at Manama on Friday. It is located near round-about Bab al Bahrain, exactly at on left side of it. On Friday there are always a lot of people in this area. Many of us do not know that in the Gulf areas and most Arab countries (please correct me if I am wrong) that the weekend is on Friday instead of Sunday (as in the western countries). This means that it is a day off for most foreign workers here in Bahrai. The offices, firms and banks are closed (unfortunately, hotel is always open all week. Poor me!). These full crowd consist of mostly foreign workers from India and its sub-continent; Pakistan, Bangladesh (my Nepalese friend, Naresh told me so LOL). They might be working in the offices, shops, constructions, restaurants, taylor etc. I guess I would do my further research later. the immigrant and foreign worker in Bahrain are big thing here.
Hows things in your country?
