in Kuwait Affairs

My best friend came by and we went out for a ride. Kuwait has changed dramatically over the years, most of the places were very new to me. one thing I’ve noticed were the people for example, majority of men had the same hair style, lots of jell to spiken it up, even the Kuwaiti traditional clothes are rarely worn. It seems that’s their way of being “Westernized or Americanized”. As for the girls well the exaggeration of makeup is way to noticeable, add to that the puffed up faces and lips. It looks like cosmetic surgeries (that’s gone bad) is the fashion now. Modified clowns as my friend puts it hehehe not that I’m complaining i admit i find it quite interesting and amusing to observe this transformation in an Arab country.
The positive change is Kuwait grew tremendously, lots of new malls, restaurants, buildings, entertainment places, hospitals and so on. One problem that i noticed people are complaining about is the traffic oh my god! it’s everywhere, for a small country what took a 7-10 min ride is now an hour.
