In 1995 I visited a math conference in Bahrain. It was one of the few conferences where my wife didn't join me. In the weekend two colleages and I visited the suq of Bahrain to buy a present for our wifes. My present was the red-white-yellow gold necklace shown in the picture above.
About a year later, the three of us met again at another conference and we talked about the presents we had bought at the Bahrain gold suq. It turned out that each of us had made the wrong choice. Indeed, my choice was a bit "too much". So, never buy jewelry when your wife cannot guide you!
