New American bloggers in Bahrain

Friday, September 17, 2004

I've recently come across some more Bahrain bloggers -- these two are Americans who are relatively new to the island (I think).

  • BD is (coincidentally!) a US Navy Reservist who is serving his annual active duty in Bahrain. He's been on the island since August, but I think he did a stint here previously also.
  • The Waalkes family have also just arrived recently. Scott Waalkes is a university professor who is in Bahrain on a Fulbright fellowship. I think he's teaching at Bahrain U while carrying out his research.

I hope I didn't screw up any of the introductions. It will be great to hear their perspectives as newcomers to Bahrain. Do give them a warm welcome.

It's Scott Waalkes here... liked your post on the Navy sailors. I saw the report about the woman sailor in the GDN and was struck by it.

I'm glad to see you went ahead and posted a link to our blog. You got the info. right. We're here for the entire 2004-05 school year and I'll be focusing my research on economic and political liberalization in Bahrain.

If you know anybody who might have insight on this topic please let me know. Thanks! Scott

Scott, it looks like youve come at just the perfect time for your research! Maybe you should try contacting the folks at McKinsey for some info.

If, on the other hand, you'd like to hear the opinions of lay folk like me, then head over to Mahmood's Den who always has an interesting debate going on with all sorts of people from Bahrain and abroad. Good luck with your work, and enjoy your stay!
