So this is actually my second trip to Kuwait to see the husband while he’s on his deployment and let me tell you, Kuwait is one hot and humid place (110 F with humidity) And I thought Dubai was crazy hot! You have not experienced true heat till you land in Kuwait! The good part about being there was that everyone spoke English (great for tourists) and people are quite helpful especially when you get lost.
However, one of the things that really threw me off were the taxis. They don’t run per meter, so you have to bargain with the driver about the price of the taxi and if you don’t do it right, the price you pay can go up real high. Moreover, Kuwait city itself is expensive! I was actually excited to do some shopping which got shot down way to easy as the conversion from US Dollars or even Dirhams was ridiculous. I cringed at the exchange place where I had to hand in my Dollars for Dinars.
Anyway, I’m actually quite lucky that I do reside in Dubai for the time being and that I can hop on the next plane to go see the hubby when he’s there and free to go out and about. Honestly, we didn’t do much, as there isn’t a lot to see in Kuwait, but the feeling of seeing my husband and knowing that he’s doing great and that he’s safe, made me feel a lot better and has made this deployment much easier to get through. We only got a day to hang out, but on a deployment, you learn to take what you can get. Every minute counts and to me, that’s more than enough 🙂
