Witnessing the bahrain protests

As I drove by from my meeting, I saw traffic slow down and hordes of police cars on the roads. A helicopter circled low and I noticed clouds of smoke from a distance.

The driver casually told me that this was normal and still a regular sighting especially on the weekends. Protestors burning rubber tyres and this had now moved into setting show rooms and other disruptions lately. I saw tear gas smoke also in the area as we drove by.

Life goes on in Bahrain but for sure business and every day life is affected slightly . It is a remarkable city with friendly people, a hospitable culture and a unique blend of modernity and tradition. I pray things get back to its usual vibrancy very quickly.
