Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Sunrise 27 December 2008


It’s another beautiful winter’s day in Kuwait. The bone-chilling cold has gone – for the moment, anyway – and the days are balmy high sixty’s (Fahrenheit) – low seventies. At night, you get to wear a light sweater. It is heaven.

The market is still full of Kuwaiti shrimp, which disappear around the 15th of January, when the season finishes. Meanwhile – a feast!

AdventureMan and I are dining on leftovers these days, sounds bad, but Christmas leftovers are the best. Flavors have time to mellow and marry, and we’d rather eat these leftovers than go out to eat!

Smoked Salmon Spread:


Cranberry Salad:

The faucet in my kitchen is fixed, thanks be to God!

Have a great day, Kuwait.

  3. A great day for climbing, Mac. 🙂 You need to visit the Western part of the USA for some world-class climbing!

    Oh Ansam, it didn’t get any better than yesterday and today for event weather. 🙂 Hope you had a great success with the flea market!
