Bahrain is Trash

After a bit of a dry spell, I return to you my fellow readers with one of my most disgusting posts ever. Look at this:
This is a dead cat. It is decayed and rotten. The spine is showing up.
This is next to my house. I live in block 624 if anyone wants to come see it.
Bahrain is dirty and filthy. It is drowning in its own shit. I've written about something similar before when a dead dog was left on a highway for weeks. A practice that is in effect still.
I have spoken to several people and they all complain about the amount of filth and smells. Muharraqis complained the least, and I do see regular garbage trucks going round. The central & northern constituencies seem to be mostly affected.
To everyone in charge I say this:
It is fucking TRASH. It is'nt a new problem. Man had to deal with freaking trash since the days of ADAM. Simply get a few quotes from waste disposal companies, approve the most feasible and move on. This would not take more than a week or two. Do you want me to do it? I would. Wallah I would.
If there is any, ANY, reason why no one is picking up trash, please; let me hear it. I would pay money to hear it. Should be rather entertaining, that.

The main reasons that Muharraq is cleaner than the rest of the country is because it's the 'face' of the country, the first place anyone who arrives to Bahrain sees! Leaving it dirty who give a bad impression!

Bad impressions are least of my worries as a citizen.. f*ck everyone else, I want a clean country to live in in the first place and then I can brag about it..

But who cares really? I guess we simply cannot rely on anyone else to do it for us anymore.. I'm gona start taking care of my own trash from now on :)

Well, I don't think that they take care of Muharraq because it is the "face" of Bahrain. Some of the inner roads are clean as well.
And Amal, Good for you. Starting with the woman in the mirror. Kudos. If everyone would only do the same Bahrain would be a little better.
Hope you find enough trash cans in the street. There aren't any.
