The hotel was clean, the food was good and the staff were friendly. We were comfortable staying at this hotel as we did not face any problems during our stay. The location is just perfect as it is close to Manama old Souq, you could just take a walk to the Souq without having to worry about parking.

Fortunately it was only night test flights.
This is the last ...
... the kids for breakfast/lunch/supper/snack, and they were in pretty good spirits.
We waited in the transit holding pen for 45 minutes or so during the airplane servicing. D and I did make a run into the airport to go potty, and had to come back through the security check point. But at least we had left T and C inside so we had minimal stuff.
The flight to Bahrain went smoothly, but then D had an almost-meltdown at ...
... and there, but it's nice that at least I won't feel obligated to work until 7pm at school, etc.
The principal, Mr. Lewis, is extremely laid back, but both he and the entire staff have been more than welcoming. I'm getting lots of helpful insider information on the city, neighborhood, and of course, the kids.
For the most part, my students will be middle eastern, though there will be a mix of other students from all over as well. ...
