Aneri's note: Have you seen the movie The Princess and the Marine? This was the first time I heard about this country and the movie was so wonderful. It’s about a sheltered Bahranian princess who falls in love with a marine stationed there and she pretends to be a marine to elope and escapes. It’s a true story! Sadly the couple divorced- it’s hard for a princess to live on a base!
