Promised land

 With one last at Manama we leave Bahrain to take the Causeway into Saudi. If this were just the 23 kilometer bridge itself, the drive from Manama to Al-Jubail would take just under 2 hours.
However in the middle is the Bahraini-Saudi border crossing. That border crossing works like this:
1. Queuing at Bahraini customs
2. Queuing at Bahraini immigration and called out of the car to to into the office
3. Queuing at Saudi immigration and go inside to have all your fingerprints photographed.
4. Queuing at Saudi customs stopping at in the assigned slot and strip searching of the car.

I'm so glad I'm in the promised land listening to the sun-set call for prayer...
