Another opportunity to get off Camp Arifjan is to sign up for one of the hospital trips. This morning a small group went the Kuwait Armed Forces Hospital which is sort of like our SAMMC or JBLM. The doctors discuss a few patient cases from the ICU, which was very claustrophobic. I was very glad to get out of there and move on to the Arabella Restaurant Complex which is right on the water. Believe it or not there is a Texas Roadhouse and Cheesecake Factory there but we wanted something a little different.
Four of us ended up in an adorable little Spanish Restaurant called Torero. For an hour or so it didn't feel quite like we were in the Middle East.
I had pasta in some foil which was interesting. The other nice thing about eating in restaurants here is the portion size. It is so much more reasonable than the American portion size!
For our after lunch dessert we moved on to the chocolate restaurant. This lotus sushi is a new favorite dessert and I wish I could get the recipe. It is SOOO sweet making a half portion just about right.
