Tent City



The bedoins are out there in the sands of Kuwait living in their tent cities. I have heard that they do this every winter to remember the old ways. They don't come out in the summer cause it is way too hot. So they are all out there now roughing it with 1500Kw generators massive light displays and A/C cooled/warmed tents. Nothing like getting back to basics Eh?.

    They are not bedouins -- or at least the overwhelming majority are not. This is a very common practice among city dwelling Kuwaitis who don't have farms to "escape" to.

    And you are right in that there is nothing basic about this style of "vacationing". It includes microwave cooking and large screen TVs.

    Brother,

    has your wife been in contact with UmmAbdurrahman? You know, Pages of Imagination?

    She doesn't post anymore and I know she had her baby, just wondering how things were going for her since I know your wife and her are friends.

    I'll check your blog for any news, thanks!
