Upcoming trip to Bahrain

It looks I’ll be going to Bahrain in December for a month or so.

Bahrain is a small country in the Persian Gulf to the east of Saudi Arabia.  In addition to an international airport, a 16 mile causeway connects Bahrain to the Saudi mainland.  Here is a photo of the causeway landing in Bahrain.
