My feet...well my face in the middle east!

8 Hours stop over! What a xmass night!

The first thing you notice when you are arriving to Bahrain at night is the amount of lights that you can see on the desert, I expect there was nothing but you can see a lot of towns and industries (crude refineries).

Also once reach this small country airport you notice that this international Airport is really small, only 10 or 12 boarding gates! And  the inmigration department is SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER slow, they spend a lot of time chitchating instead of doing their job, I warn you, you will spend at least 20 minutes to pass trough inmigration even having 5 or 6 people in your queue... :p The price of the Visa 5 BHD = 10 Eur

But lucky (or maybe unlucky) me I have to come into de country for the checkin...my feet on MIDDLE EAST!

-Once on the checkin, nobody was at GULF AIR, finally someone came and did the checkin

-WTF the GULF AIR lounge is closed and this airport is so dirty, noisy and sticky...

-Finally they open at 6.30 but I didn't notice until 7

I get a lil bit dissapointed with the gate and the plane to Kathmandu, it was full of nepali workers in the whole middle east...The plane was old and many stuf broken, but the gate, was super crapy, it looks like we where animals in a stable, bad bad bad
