After a painful 26 hour journey to Kuwait, we’d finally made it. Unfortunately, Zak still had one more week of teaching before the winter holiday started, and so we spent my mornings exploring Kuwait on my own.
Since we arrived at 6 am, the first day was mostly just for recovering. The following morning, Trevor and I mustered up the energy to get out and see what Kuwait had to offer.
First up was the Heritage Souk area. It was fairly empty, and quite lacklustre. It was full of shops selling shoes, fabrics, clothing, jewelry, electronics, and offering currency exchange services–all things I didn’t need. So we spent the morning mostly just walking around and looking at stuff.
After the market, we took another cab to Al Shaheed Park. It was frustrating how difficult it was to get a good taxi though. For one thing, so many of them didn’t know how to get to big landmarks like this park, or even the Heritage Market. Also, half the drivers are glued to YouTube on their phones while they’re driving!
The day was capped with some delicious Iranian food with Zak and his friends.
