Kuwait - alternative views
I'm falling behind with my photos. I still have many to put on the blog even though when I started blogging I thought I'd never have enough to keep going! Another water dispenser, above. I've only seen one of these. I had time this morning to look at the other photos on the Flickr site that I linked to yesterday. He has a set of general views of Kuwait that will give you a good overview of the place.
He took a shot of the towers from the same spot I did a couple of weeks ago. I'd better post it so it doesn't look like I copied him! Actually, all his photos look better than mine... sigh. But I see he hasn't noticed the water dispensers!
I found another excellent site a little while ago written by Daniel Schereck from a tourist's point of view (takes a long time to open on dial-up though). He captures the place perfectly for someone only here for a short time. Lot's of cats and rubbish too! I think all our impressions are similar - except for the better photos and writing! Well worth a look if you are interested. While I'm at it, this is another site that covers all aspects of Kuwait in a very simple, clear way. I should read it more often!
Update: For Annabel and others - you can see all my water dispenser photos here.
