This is was our location in Al Somman, It is 3 hours from the Kuwaiti borders and it was chosen and arranged for by our great friend Mishary (a different Mishary). They have professional people in Saudi who get paid to take care of everything (They bring the tents, rugs, dig a toilet *Yikes!*, and you know, make it happen). The trip was from wednesday (I went on a thursday coz I couldn’t take a day off work) to saturday. It was worth it and we had plenty of fun. Take a look at the pictures and compliment me on my amazing eye and photographic skills *sarcasm*
First thing you do if you wanna keep your friends, you go and wash up. This scene to some of you may seem icky, but to me it was fun, brushing my teeth like that and wondering how the hell I’m gonna use the toilet if I think THIS is hard. Yeah priceless.
Then You go to the toilet to… you know.. but before you do, you go and ask a nice friend of yours how to “manage” going in and out without creating a mess. That friend was ½ cream milk. I asked him and he showed me how to fill up the toilet with water from the tank, how to fill up the 2 buckets and keep them near you in case you needed more water. And for a moment there, I thought of skipping this whole toilet thing and just hold on till I get back to Kuwait.. but yeah.. I couldn’t. But I came out of there triumphant! 😛
^Coffee and tea for breakfast, before the real breakfast arrives. The weather was cold and kinda windy.
This hill was the play ground for my friends and their cars.
Keeping your mouth busy makes you forget the sands gritting away inside your mouth.
^That was part of our dinner. We made a muchboos laham. 2 full sheeps (tyos) some were cooked the Kuwaiti way, and some were wrapped in foil and thrown into the fire. The outcome was amazing, the meat melts in our mouths.
Kuwaitis can’t help but be patriotic when they’re away.
^Lots of activities going on at the same time 😛
^This picture up here has a story:
We were told that there is a place with lots of greens and flowers maybe (faitha. esem faitha ithaher yay min fayathan. ya3ny elmokan fath min elmo6ar. stupid word). So we were given the coordinates, and 3 cars followed a single GPS to get there. 2 hours later we reached the place. The place had nothing special and was full of big rocks. It sucked. 2 hours of driving, 20-40KMPH, and nothing, no faitha no ba6eekh. We sat there, we tried our best to make the most of that place but ended up starting a little fire and having some tea. a total of 5 hour trip for something we could’ve easily done near the toilet’s tents!
