I might be going to Bahrain

  1. I just got off Skype with the DH and he's trying to get me to join him in Bahrain. Don't we have a PF member here that lives there? If I go, it won't be for another week or two. If the gal that lives there is online and reads this, please PM me. I would like to ask her a few questions about the culture and traditions and how to dress - don't want to be disrespectful while I'm there.
     
  2. bagnshoofetish.. i'm from UAE, Dubai.. but in the gulf area generally u can dress the same way u dress California as long as u dont walk in the streets with your bikini u should be fine!!!.. its not as its perceived that ppl are strict here.. maybe they were but not anymore.. actually locals of Bahrain and Dubai as well they tend to wear jeans and tshirts, short skits, etc.. its just no big deal.. and we have lots and lots of ppl from the US, Canada and Europe who works here and it seems to me that they're enjoying themselves alot.. especially at the beach!!

    goodluck and have fun.. keep us posted :flowers:
     
  3. The only thing that I can say is:

    STAY COOL!!!
     
  4. cool! thank you so much! my DH says I need to wear something on my head. He is at the Ritz Carlton though so I don't know if its just what he's seeing there or not? Or maybe because he is a guest of the royal family? If I can wear what I wear here - yea!!!!
     
  5. Gosh, that's really neat!!! Take pictures for me so I can live vicariously through you!
     
  6. oh you know I will. hubby sent me this photo. this is the side of the hotel he is on. I'm so there.
