Every time (about every 20 mins) CNN runs its advert 'Come to Business Friendly Bahrain' I chuckle. Do they know that the bedrock of Bahrian's economy is booze and birds?

Dear posh,

"Birds and booze?" Well, that sounds pretty "friendly" to me. Very Happy

Just back from a weekender, staying at the Hotel California in Juffair. The causeway was almost empty - great! - but the Bahrainis (Shia) are not happy and the there is a simmering tension. APCs and machine guns in the financial district. Other than that it was a blinder.
