Situated about 20 minutes' drive from the Kuwait City, Ahmadi has developed into a main commercial center from it's original oil industry roots.   Its been a while since the last movie showed at this old cinema complex in Ahmadi. Shops on groundlevel trade in everything from pizzas to general groceries.   The area of Salmiya seen from a marina outcrop. Salmiya is known as the traditional "up-town" area with many high-end shopping malls. A must see for any visitor to Kuwait.  
  A picturesque setting next to a small restaurant in Shaab, a very popular suburb amongst foreigner expatriates.   Downtown Kuwait, the commercial and banking hub of the city. Spectacular high risers are seen here in various stages of completion.   Flying radio control aircraft is a popular past time in Kuwait. Dedicated locals as well as expats spend a lot of time and money on it. Great!   Marina Crescent at night seen from Hard Rock Cafe, Salmiya to the left of the photographer. The near mirror-smooth Gulf indicates a windless evening.   Many families prefer to have prepared meals home-delivered. This resulted in an excellent system where nearly any meal one the menu is available for home-delivery from just about any restaurant in town.
