My best friend and I wanted to watch a movie, so we went to Bahrain yesterday. We left home around 1500, and were back around 0500. I like Bahrain, except for unmistakable presence of many, many Saudis there, and they annoy the hell out of me. The annoying male spoiled brats and the female over made-up ninjas were there for different reasons: some for booze, some to fornicate, and some simply to watch movies, just like me and my friend.
I think Barhain and Saudi Arabia have a love/hate relationship: Bahrainis hate the behaviour of some Saudis who come to their country, but they also don’t want to lose the money Saudis bring if their government finally decided to loosen up by allowing the opening of movie theaters and giving people more freedoms. Of course, this is not a win-win situation for both parties, but this is what life about: win some, lose some, and live and let live.
