Happy National Day Mamlakat Al-Bahrayn

Today, December 16th Bahrain celebrates its 36th National Day and Accesion to the throne. Since the beginning of the month, there are national flags everywhere and posters of the King (HM Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifah), the Crown Prince (HRH Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa) and the Prime Minister (Shaikh Khalifah ibn Sulman Al Khalifah) all around the city. Along the way to work, I saw that there are more posters and flags. I hope I could get the poster photo of the king riding an Arab horse. It is so grand and eye catching (hey I am doing a good homework for all the names, I hope they are all correct).
I am really looking forward to see the fireworks tonight but I am not sure if I could make it as I do not even know where it is going to be held. LOL.
So if you are interested to know a bit of Bahrain and its rich history, you can go here and if you want to see and find out more about the handsome and charismatic Bahrain's King HM Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifah, please go here and here for his speech on addressing the National day and Accesion to the throne.
