The 'scorched earth' when the Iraqi's ignited the oil wells before they fled.

The last exhibits cover the downfall of Saddam in the 2003 Iraq war. The head of a statue of Saddam from Baghdad.

The famous Kuwait (water) Towers.

Late afternoon lunch by the gulf.

Peak hour after the catch of the day is brought in from the Persian Gulf at the Kuwait Fish markets.


At the Kuwait central souq.

Some prayer beads in the colour of the Kuwaiti flag I bought as a souvenir at the souq.

At Kuwait International on Thursday night, about to fly United Airlines to Bahrain.

Catching a cab into Manama in Bahrain. Was quite surprised to be driven by a local!
