Good morning, Kuwait!

It wasn’t supposed to be this cold this morning! I think it must have been another freezing night last night, but between extra blankets and the Qatteri Cat, we slept just fine. We were in Al Ghanim last night, and saw a big sale going on – space heaters! Everyone was out buying heat.


It is going to be another glorious day in Kuwait! Dress warmly, get out there and enjoy your Friday!


We watched Valkyrie and my husband said it stayed very close to the historical events. It wasn’t very exciting, or moving, to me. I think I might’ve changed the ending. 😉 The funniest moment in the film was where AdventureMan said “I think that coughing is coming from someone in the audience, not from the film” and from time to time, we saw a head pop up in the lower left hand corner.

  1. Ah! Pirated dvds at their best.. hehe!

    What’s your dvd-man’s name?! They have weird aliases usually. When I was in Kuwait the guy I bought my dvds from went by the name “Lucky”! 😛

    Good morning – Kuwait looks peaceful today!

  2. LLLOOOLLLL – I don’t think he wants us to have a name! I know the man makes a call, the DVD guy comes, you have to be with someone he recognizes the first time. After that, he knows you. They have an elaborate system. We call him the “good copy” guy, because if you ask for something, he will tell you he doesn’t have a good copy yet, and won’t sell you a bad copy.

    Peaceful in Kuwait – yep. It’s Friday and it’s cold. No one is out who doesn’t have to be! Wish you were here, Kinan. 🙂
