 Gulf Run 5 Day 3

Yesterday was the third and final day of the GulfRun. The whole day was drag racing only. The disappointing thing is that not all the cars participated in the event, but it was still a lot of un. Took some cool pictures.

All good things must come to an end. Thank you GulfRun you were wonderful.

Gulf Run Day 2

Today was a really good day, the weather was a bit hot but very pleasant in the shade. All drivers participated in the full track, and also we saw some compete in the drifting competition that somehow transformed into a doughnut competition.

I also got to jump in a BMW M5 (above) and a Caterham (below) and be driven around the track.

Souq Al-Mubarkiya – سوق المباركية

Yesterday i took my random yearly trip to Souq Al-Mubarkiya, one of the most historic places in Kuwait. I wasnt looking for anything, just a little walk around since the weather was nice and there wasnt much to do last night. It was nice to see some foreigners (europeans/americans) walking around and enjoying a taste of our history. I took some quick snaps of random things with my phone which you can find below…

I saw this canon-like Courvoisier Cognac bottle in a random store with lots of old and vintage stuff. I regretted not buying later actually because it does look pretty cool. I also found some really old wind up record players that still work which was also interesting. Click below to see the rest of the pictures. Continue Reading

You gotta love being called a “conglomerate”

A former U.S. Army Major stationed at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, his wife, sister and niece were sentenced for their participation in a bribery and money laundering scheme related to contracts awarded in support of the Iraq war

More Iraq war conspiracies out of Kuwait.

As you can see most articles these days relating to Kuwait are either to do with money, military, conspiracies, or all the 3 put together.
