Not so boring Bahrain



I came to Bahrain for 2 days for a NESA PD Meeting.  I arrived early on the Saturday morning so had most of the day to myself before meeting up with some of the other members of the Ed Tech leadership group.   Once I'd dropped my bags at the hotel, I set off for a morning wander through the souk.  On the way back I stopped and took a photo of the World Trade Centre (quite an amazing looking building)


The hotel courtesy car took me to the Bahrain National Museum which is full of great interesting art and other exhibitions.


It was also possible to take a boat from the museum to a local fort at Bu Maher.  On the way there was also some lovely art.



I met up with these IT teachers from Bahrain and Pakistan and they went with me on the boat to Bu Maher Fort.


 

It was great to have the opportunity to visit this country - though a weekend was just about enough to see most things!  I spent the last evening I was there hanging out at the Movenpick by their pool, before heading back to the airport.  It was a great weekend!
