It's been a while since I blogged.
My husband's cousin was here from Jordan for the past week and a half and just left yesterday morning.
His father was my husband's uncle who died in November from prostrate cancer, so there was some personal business to take care of here that took a little longer than expected.
He and his family left Kuwait during the invasion in 1990 and never returned, so this was his first time back in all those years.
Last Friday we drove around the city showing him different sights he might remember.
Kuwait Towers, of course, are the most recognizable landmark.
We passed by the new cultural center that opened in October -- just days earlier, the roof on one of the buildings was damaged due to a fire caused by welding.
We could see workers there doing the necessary repairs.
That evening, we went to Souk Al Mubarakiya which is the oldest souk in Kuwait. It was renovated after damage during the Iraqi Invasion.
Right now it is looking very festive in preparation for National and Liberation Days, the 25th and 26th of this month.
That Friday also happened to be the night of the Full Snow Moon.
No snow here ... it was a warm night so we were able to sit outside for dinner.
Foul ("phool") and falafel from a restaurant that's been around since my husband was a kid.
Tea and crochet was a nice way to end the day.
Hope all is well in your corner of the world.
