Roaming around the Souq with my camera I’m often asked are you lost or looking for something? No I’m not! Are you a tourist? I open my mouth and my Bahraini (more precisely Muharraqi) accent gives it away obviously I’m Bahraini. Are you a university student? Yes I’m (Though not mentioning graduating years back!) Aren’t we all students in this life after all.
Why are you taking our photos? Well, for a project! I snap a couple of photos they wish me luck in my project and I walk away.
These are some of the old Bahraini men I met at Manama Souq
