Camp Arifjan's MWR had a trip to the Kuwait Towers and Mais Alghanim Restuarant for dinner. These trips are always in the evening and it took us awhile to leave the post. We finally arrived at the towers at dusk and instead of going up inside them again I set out for some different angles. I don't know how well I succeeded but I feel like they look pretty cool at dusk.
I also went to have a look at the beach which is kind of dirty looking but the lit up coast line is pretty with the lights.
Just down the road from the towers is Mais Alghanim Restaurant which is a leading Arabic and Lebanese restaurant. The building is HUGE with two floors of restaurant. The door, lights, decorations are intricate and beautiful. Our group of people were put upstairs at a long table within view of two guys playing drums. All around people are enjoying their houka's and we even watch some women in burkha's trying to eat under their clothing.
I had some of that delicious hummus and bread before a shrimp dinner. One thing they have everywhere here is the lemonade with mint that is just great!. For dessert I tried Halewet Al Jebin which is an egyptian dessert. It turned out to be pretty disgustingly sweet but it looked pretty!
I went on the trip with Tina Braddock and Samantha Swehla who are both nurses with the Combat Support Hospital. What a fun night and a good diversion from deployment boredom.
