The Tree Of Life

I read with interest Mr Mahmoods blog regarding the Tree Of Life.
I was there with a couple of friends one friday afternoon in early march this year.
It is really amazing to see Gods creation in the middle of the desert, a mighty tree standing proud, alone and to be the pride of every Bahraini.
The breathtaking scenery around it is so mesmerizing and you could just sit and stare at the world around us.

That cool and windy afternoon, we were there with quite a number of visitors which looked like expats who are/were employed in Bahrain, having the friday afternoon off and perhaps some tourists.
What catches my attention was, how these people who were over excited to take pictures, they even climbed up the trees, sit on the branches without a care nor respect to the property.
I wanted to snap some shots of the tree alone in its majestic splendour, but I didnt have the opportunity since the crowd were always there.

One thing I do agree and hope is for the authority to take charge of the matter and exercise some kind of rules to preserve the tree and keep the surrounding areas clean.
Bahrain should be proud of its natural heritage and every care should be taken to preserve what it has.

Long live the Tree Of Life .......
