In Kuwait, you don't walk, you drive. I see loads of potentially great shots as I'm driving around but there is nowhere to stop because there are no pavements. I don't know if it's my imagination but Kuwait seems to have become one big traffic jam since the schools opened in September. I was out and about today and spent most of the time crawling along or stuck in jams. This is one of the main motorways (a deathtrap called the 30 - statistically one of the most dangerous roads in the world) and traffic was slow but that guy on the left wasn't going to let that bother him. He just took to the hard shoulder and whizzed past us all. This isn't at all unusual despite the ruts in the lane and barriers along some sections of road. The problem is, because everyone drives so fast, with no lane discipline and only inches between the cars, if one person brakes, everyone has to slam on the brakes behind and some people pull into this lane to avoid an accident -straight into these guys going at speeds up to 150kph!
The view that you see here could be anywhere in Kuwait. The whole place is full of beige featureless buildings. When I first came here I got lost every day dropping Mark to work and coming home. I was so angry I would cry! There's no point looking at the signs as some of them are placed after the turn off you need to take!
