Breakfast in the Souq

Breakfast with Gary BrownThis morning I had breakfast with Gary Brown in the Souq Bab Al Bahrain at Naseef’s, located in the heart of old Manama, the capital of Bahrain. Gary taught and was the principal at Al Raja school for 32 years. He speaks Arabic fluently. As I listened to him order breakfast in Arabic and greeting and talking to people in the shops in Arabic I now have this deep desire to learn how to speak Arabic too.

    • Gary was a teacher and principal in Bahrain for 32 years. He decided right away when he first arrived that he needed to speak the language of his students. So he learned Arabic from day one.
