Bahrain Scare

The Gulf Airways aircraft that brought us to Bahrain, the transit point, was big and comfortable, with personal LCD. No more such luck on other 3 more flights. Anyway, didn't have much time to enjoy it too, as most of time I was sleeping.

This picture of military helicopter nearly caused me trouble from security guard

At Bahrain airport, I had a little scare. The incident happened when I saw a military helicopter hovered around the airport. I took several shoots of it. A security officer saw and came to said cannot take photos inside airport and worse, asked me to follow him. He brought me to a departure gate nearby and made a phone call, presumably to his superior. A miserable 5 minutes wait, but eventually he let go me, obviously because of unable to reach his superior. This incident certainly didn't leave good impression of his country in my mind.

I'm enjoying reading through the blog about your trip. In many countries, you can be arrested for photographing anything military, so be careful!
