Manama, City of Trade, Multiculturalism and Religious Coexistence (T)

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Poland - 17-Nov-18

Manama, City of Trade, Multiculturalism and Religious Coexistence (T)

Just returned (November 2018) from short Bahrain trip. While in Bahrain you have to see Manama center as the majority of hotels / hostels, car rentals or bus terminals are there.

I have a lot of doubts for any future inscription of this site. Historical places and buildings like Bab al Bahrain, located nearby old post office or old court (that you can see on the photo) seem to be well maintained but in my opinion they do not constitude any integrity. Unfortunately they are surrounded by completely new sky scrapers. Old souqs may be old but all the shops look also very modern. Older buildings - at least those to the east of Bab al Bahrain - does not look very special, just typical as in any other cities in the Gulf Region.

Budj Bim Cultural Landscape (T)

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Poland - 30-Aug-18

Budj Bim Cultural Landscape (T)

Site visited in March 2018, both designated components. As Frederik described Tyrendarra area I would focus mainly on Budj Bim - Mt Eccles National Park.

To get there you will probably need your own car as there are no public transportation in the area

Saloum Delta

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Poland - 07-May-18

Saloum Delta

Some practical info (site visited in April, 2018). The best place to start exploration of the area is a small town of Toubacouta (frequent local buses or sept-place from Kaolack, main road Kaolack - Karang - Gambian border is a basic transportation artery from Senegal to Gambia). Toubacouta has some descent number of hotels / hostels, shops, restaurants so its an ideal base for visiting the area.

The only way to reach Saloum Delta is to take a boat. There are usual two types of trips offered by local people: southbound trip from Toubacouta to Sipo village (typical Delta village located on artificial mounds made of millions of shells). In the village - around 30 huts you can visit any place as well as buy local products (honey, souvenirs)

Djoudj

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Poland - 26-Apr-18

Djoudj

Site visited recently (April, 2018). It is one of those places that are easier to visit with an organised tour than alone mostly due to cost reason.

Several tour agencies in Saint Louis organise daily tours to Djoudj Reserve. Prices are around 30.000 CFA per person for the group of minimum 4 tourists. The trip usually takes half a day starting around 8.00 am and finishing aproximately at 15.00 - 16.00. To have a better understanding - CFA has mostly fixed rate to Euro (655 CFA, it was the same when being in 2014 in Burkina Faso)

Darien National Park

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Poland - 02-Dec-17

Darien National Park

Finally visited in November 2017. Quite difficult to reach but doable with some preparation.

Of course it is not the place you can go on your own. There are number of dangers that are real (smugglers, narcotraffickers, guerillas, paramilitares), presence of many armed representatives of Panamanian police (Senafront) only acknowledge that. But all the efforts and difficulties are rewarded with what you finally see in Darien. Untouched rainforest, pristine rivers, diverse wildlife, endemic species –everything you will find there.
