Manama, Bahrain

I frequently went over the causeway from Dammam, Saudi Arabia to Bahrain, when I was working there as part of the IPO/appraisal project.  On one particular trip, I did a little
more sightseeing than usual, and went to the Bahrain National Museum, a bit north of the Gulf Hotel, where I was staying.  Later, I went to see an ancient Portugese fort on the island
with one of my coworkers, Don Michel.
