In Kuwait after 4 years ( 2 )

3ashan 7'ater Sou, here are more of the things I've noticed in my short visit to Kuwait:

1) Hospitals are still a wonderful oraganised place ( that's if you are a doctor ).
2) There's an increase in the number of Indians & Egyptians.
3) Although the it has always been the case that cheap labour live in an un-human conditions, it's my first time to bump into a beggar who isn't arabic speaking. Does this indicate anything about their conditions !!!!!!!!! I don't know
4) There has been an improvement in the quality of internet connections.
5) Avenues, a veeeeeeery big mall, is a cool place. Yet, I find it soul-less.
6) Ikea is a boring place, you have to go through the whole 2 storeys of the store to reach the exit.
7) It's becoming a more difficult task to find normal decent clothing ( where you are still in style, yet you aren't wearing cat walk clothing). Stores are selling waaaaaaaaay trendy ( cat-walkish as I call it ) outfits.
8) More & more Egyptians are starting to own 4WD cars.

Kefaya keda.

Short visit? How long did you stay?

Amen about the 4-wheeler theory! I thought I was the only one who noticed, haha!

I totally agree about the clothing selection too. I hate shopping here, HATE IT!

Avenues is too far away, I don't like it one bit. They're building an even bigger mall called 360 Mall. I wonder what it'll be like; perhaps as "soul-less" as the Avenues.

Well I'm still here. But I'll be leaving by the end of the week isA.

As for Avenues, I didn't like the mall. I liked the idea of an air-conditioned minin-city :D
