Johnny Corino's- # 61

The other day, some friends and I enjoyed lunch at Johnny Corino's. We ate outside and enjoyed the wonderful weather. In Kuwait, the weather is either freezing cold or scorching hot; right now we are in that nice little two week period where the weather is beautiful.

Kuwait Towers at Night- # 60

This photo is of the Kuwait Towers at night. They way they are lit, reminds me of the Jetsons cartoon.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am so sorry I haven't been able to post for the past two days. My computer is rejecting life right now, we are currently in the process of resuscitating it.. so please bear with me till I get it fixed. I will be posting when I can access a computer (hopefully everyday). Again, thanks for visiting!!

Wheely- # 57

Walking to a restaurant, I came across this boy practicing his wheelies on his bike. He was a sweet kid, and was more than happy to show off for the camera. The road he was on was fairly long; he impresively could ride the entire strip doing a wheely.

Also at the Friday Market (see previous day's post), was a snake on display to be sold. Another monkey was in the wooden box to the right. I like how interested the men to the left are.

Monkey Dress Up- # 51

While at Friday Market (like a flee market), my friends and I came across this man painting this monkey's nails. Her toes were already done. She sat patiently in his arms waiting for him to finish. More than likely, his intention was to sell the monkey as a pet.

Seat Belt Sign- # 46

This seat belt sign is a bit ironic to me. Its there to remind us to buckle up, however, I'm not so sure car seats even exist! Driving down the road, it is common to see children, of all ages, lose in cars and sitting on laps of adults.

Day off- # 45

A good day off always consists of shesha and mint tea!!

Bumper?? - # 44

Alright, so... this was a very interesting photo op. Accidents are very common here. They happen daily, and rank from minor to severe all the time. This car was parked outside the mall; its missing the bumper.... well not really, if you look close, you can see it sticking out of the back window! The most comical part of this was that there was a person in the back seat with the bumper. These guys were great sports and we all got a good laugh!

Take a Break- # 39

This man is takin a break as his sheep graze. He's sitting in the shade his truck has provided for him and eating lunch. This one little sheep sperated from the heard on its own, which worked out perfectly for my pic!! (S)he quietly strolled over to the man, he in turn put his arm around it and looked up. You can't ask for a better subject!!
