Stumble across a random antique shop. Find a vinyl section. Almost lose my mind. The Tempations? Sade? Teddy Pengergrass? No. Fairouz? Sound of Lebanon (1969), UM KHALTHOUM?! On VINYL...? Are you joking?!
These records wouldn't last 5 minutes in ANY store, across Europe. Possibly the rest of the world. Think one of a kind Hermes bags. Or one of those made to order LV trunks. Or a rare vintage car. Or something.
Another reason why history remains priceless, and Bahrain is truly a Middle East gem :-)
