Hanging Out in the Middle East

Sorry I haven't posted in the last couple of days :) We've been hanging out here and having fun :) So, in the pic below you can see this monument (I guess that's what you call it or maybe just art)... It's at a major roundabout in town. The country we're in is famous for pearls. So that's what this monument is all about :) (see the big pearl on the top?)Hanging out in Chili's :)
This is the Grand M0sque. It's a really huge M0sque here.
Here's a bay with a bunch of boats (I thought it was pretty). I think a lot of these boats are a part of the pearl industry (is that what you call it?)
We were in a mall today eating and I took this pic of Adam :) On the left of the pic, you can see a m0sque in the mall. It's there, so that if it's time to pray, then people can go there instead of having to leave the mall.
In the pic below, I'm standing in the middle of all the flags that represent the countries of the Gulf.
Some guys in the mall...
And last, but not least.... we had some Starbucks today!!!

COOL pics! It's so fun to see a place that's so different from here. I'm looking forward to hearing about it - is it hot? What were most people wearing? Is it a laid back place or more strict? etc. :)

Looks like you guys are having a great time! I love traveling and getting a feel for different cultures. How's the food?
