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)
Even though I have written posts in the past implying that I wouldn’t mind getting a Lamborghini, my dream car is actually pretty low key compared to these cars.
By the way, I think whoever allowed this ugly pink/yellow fast food restaurant to be built attached to a beautiful, old Mosque should be beaten up. Everytime I see it I feel like crying, because its so ugly.
So, Friday was the Harley gathering at the Hard Rock Café. We went with my dad to check out the bikes, especially The Don’s.
One thing I’m sure everyone who attended noticed, was the foul smell the wind blew our way from time to time. Is this thing on the picture below like a drain that dumps sewage right into the sea? In the middle of Salmiya? I hope not…although it sure smelled like it, and the fact that it was low tide didn't help at all.
On a brighter note, here’s some bike pictures:
Slightly different view from this balcony...
Statues are quite uncommon in Kuwait. Religion discourages (or even prohibits?) showing the human form in any way such as statues or paintings. The only portrait seen everywhere is that of the Emir (ruler) and crown prince, and there’s usually a tea pot or sometimes an oil well in the middle of a roundabout, and that’s pretty much it.
After the liberation a few statues sprung up, like the one below with freedom doves. Too bad it’s now full of grafitti.
