Thankfully Saudi Arabia has banned men from working in lingerie stores, although it is a recent development. Bahrain has not followed suit. I still find it very odd to have men selling underware, bras, and such to women who must wear and abaya and cover themselves. Just seems like a contradiction. Anyway hopefully Bahrain will start employing women in these jobs soon instead of men.

Pork is not allowed to be sold in Saudi Arabia. It is not eaten by Muslims. Coming to Saudi Arabia I never realized how much of it I ate. It has become one of the things I miss about the States. On a trip to Bahrain we were introduced to the Pork Section of a grocery store. Not something you see at all the stores in Bahrain since they are also a Muslim country. It was quite a sight to see. It was also interesting to see the other "American" food in that section. Things like Lucky Charms, and Spam. Ugh!
