Where in the World: Bahrain

This week was Western Asia, I did much better than I thought I would and only missed off four countries which were 1. Lebanon 2. Bahrain 3. Kuwait 4. Qatar

All four countries have visited my blog at least once, so lets go with the first alphabetically, which is Bahrain, I know very little about this country so lets see what we can learn

  1. First thing I have just learn is its an island, actually the island nation comprises a small archipelago made up of 70 natural islands and an additional 33 artificial islands. Its connected to the mainland via a bridge to Saudi Arabia
  2. It is the 3rd smallest country is Asia and the smallest sovereign state in the middle east
  3. Its the biggest per-capita consumer of electricity in Asia
  4. There are more than 100,000 Dilmun-era burial mounds most of them constructed between 2200 and 1750 BCE
  5. Bahrain is home to the Tree of Life, a single mesquite tree planted around 1583 in the southern desert. It is still unclear what sustains the tree as there are no obvious water sources nearby
  6. Bahrain’s name comes from the Arabic term al-bahrayn, which means “two seas.”
  7.  Bahrain has the world’s largest underwater theme park, it has a 70m fully submerged Boeing 747 jumbo jet aeroplane.
  8. Its languages are Arabic, English, Farsi, Urdu
  9. Bahrain is one of the few countries in the Middle East in which women have the right to vote and vie for elective positions
  10. Some of the traditional music in Bahrain is known as Sawt music

There you go, lets hope I don’t forget about this country again
