Visiting Bahrain

I am here in Bahrain visting the Central Bank of Bahrain to make an assesment for migrating their J2ee and portal software application to the latest releases of Oracle Application Server. This probably my 6th visit to bahrain. The following are some of the comments

1- Taxis are over priced. They are equipped with meters but drivers do not use them. A short trip costs around 12 USD.

2-You cannot stay in non 5 starts hotels. Unless newly innovated, even the 5 starts are not all that good. I tried Hilton some time back and it was horrible (i noticed that its name is changed to Golden Tulip). Hoilday Inn was also horrible (the name is now changed to Crown Plaza and i hope it is better). The 5 start hotels cost something like 180 USD +20% without breakfast. I felt that this is also over priced compared to the standard and the service offered.

3- The weather is fine during the day, however, it turned a bit cool in the evening. You need a jacket, which is something i do not use in the Gulf Region. But it seems that Bahrain is cooler than UAE and Oman during winter.

4- I came to Gulf Air, which left on time, but the AirBus 320 seat space is limited and as such is uncomforable for 191 cm guy

5- I am leaving tomorrow back to Amman after less than 36 hours, which is long enough to miss Amman.

3id in Arabic comes from E3adah (return , repetition). Saying Happy Eid implicitly means that one wishes the happy return of this occasion. On the personal front, 2006 was a good year for my career. However, on the regional and global domain, i hope it never repeats. I am really sad that year after year, we have pieces of our land still occupied. Both Arab and Muslim worlds have a lot of catching up to do, and i am unable to see the first step towards catching up being taken. i hope next year comes with a reason for us to be happy and wish the return of same occasion

Peter Answers - Interactive Soul Engine

A couple of years back, one of the kids in the family loged into and starting asking me questions and letting the Web engine write back the correct answers. A couple of Days back, we checked it out again for fun to see how elderies would react to it.
try it out yourself. Depending on the level of spirituality embedded within you, your level of interaction with the soul engine would be stronger.. Try it out
