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)

Tareq Rajab museum is the most neglected but wonderful treasure in Q8. I am astonished every time I ask a group of locals whether they have visited it and the response is invariably, 'Never heard of it".
