Generally I can be found roaming somewhere in the world. I'm originally from Hungary, I grew up in Kuwait, I did my BA in the States, my MA in the UK, and now work in Hungary, but still return to Kuwait regularly :o)

My favorite…fort in Kuwait

Well, this one easy as there is only one fort, the one of very few historic sites in Kuwait. The Red Fort (Kasr Al-Ahmar) in located in Jahra, and was the site of an important battle in 1920 protecting Kuwait.
Jahra is not available on Google Maps, and as usual I don’t have the exact address, but people in Jahra are very friendly and can tell the way to the fort.The last time I was there was a year ago, and at that time they were just finishing up renovating the whole fort, apparently it will become a museum. The hares agreed to give us a private tour for KD 3. At the end of the tour he asked for KD 15, and turned out he meant KD 3 EACH, including the one year old toddler. So make sure he doesn’t rip you off too much.
