officially the Kingdom of Bahrain is a small island country situated near the western shores of the Persian Gulf. It is an archipelago with Bahrain Island, the largest land mass, at 55 km long by 18 km wide. Saudi Arabia lies to the west and is connected to Bahrain by the King Fahd Causeway while Iran lies 200 km to the north across the Persian Gulf. The peninsula of Qatar is to the southeast across the Gulf of Bahrain.
These are my first covers received from Bahrain, sent by my good friend Edwin from Philippines, who work in Bahrain. Bahrain issue beautiful stamps every year in different attractive themes. He used 'Arab Postal Day 2012' stamp on the cover ( right corner one) the one I wished to complete from all Arab countries issued the same. He tried his best to get clear postmark on the cover. Thank You very much Edwin for the big help.
