It took nearly three years but it’s done—finally ticked off Al Fateh Grand Mosque off the places to visit list.
Built in 1987, Al Fateh Grand Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the world. A fact I didn’t know until I looked up the mosque’s opening times.
Dust storms aren’t uncommon in Bahrain. Far from a weekly, or even monthly occurrence. But I’ve got used to seeing “widespread dust” as a weather forecast on my phone. They can last an entire day, or be burned up in the midday sun. Sometimes the dust rolls in during the afternoon, creating havoc on the roads at night as visibility shrinks to just metres.
