Well, time flies when one is having fun! It seems like almost yesterday that I came over here and now I must soon return to home-sweet-home. This weekend lasted three days with Thursday being a religious holiday (the Ascention of the Prophet). Thursday: I had an excellent buffet lunch with some friends at Teatro at the Hilton Hotel in Mangaf. Cost = 11.5 KD per person ($43 USD or 28 Euros). Friday: My colleague and I enjoyed the seafood buffet at the Crowne Plaza Hotel which is located in the Farwaniya section of Kuwait City. Total cost was approximately 13.5 KD (tip and water included). On Saturday I stayed at home (way too dusty outside) and cooked for myself. I can’t eat out every day because if I did that I’d soon be as ‘big as a house’.
The Sharq Mall – opened around 2001. This mall was once THE mall to see and be seen in. Although time has past it by (the Avenues Mall is now the ‘IN’ place to be), the Sharq Mall is still a nice place to shop.
