Today, while I was just about to enter "the Centre" to do a bit of quick shopping, a Bahraini man, confused, looking around and kind of embarrassed approached me. He asked (in Arabic): "excuse me brother, I don't know English. Can you tell me where Dairy Queen is?" It was smack behind him. I pointed out his destination, he thanked me and ran towards it. I looked up to the sign of the American resturant, it was purely in English as it is in its home country, despite Bahraini laws to have Arabic on all signage. It is a sad time we live in, when a citizen feels like a tourist in his own country.
