    I am watching BBC World news on TV.
    Things in Bahrain are looking very serious. Seems quite violent.
    Is anybody there and have any news/updates?
    Schools closed?

    Some international schools on half term break this week anyway but office staff have been told to stay away today. I expect most schools are waiting to see how the situation develops this weekend before they open up again on Sunday.
     
  5. Wonder if the teachers from the travelling Saints' school will travel..

    I have spent the last 4 days in Bahrain. Didnt see a thing. Only evidence of anything going on was big queues in the supermarket. One corner of manama is blocked by tanks. Most companies sent their workers home half-day yesterday so my hotel bar was busier than usual. Absolutely no problem getting to the airport.
    The rumours are that the occupied roundabout would cause the Grand Prix to be cancelled so they sent the tanks in.
