Boulevard Park

The previous post was at night so here is a view of the park in the day time and it is beautiful. There is a long path for walking/running, two tunnels that have dancing lights inside, streams, ponds and a few play areas.

The picture above is a special area dedicated to people in wheel chairs which is awesome considering there are very few places catering to the handicapped even though there are many disabled people in Kuwait. Warning: don't sit on the grass, unfortunately there aren't many benches to sit on and if you try to sit on the grass the security will yell at you to get off.

Food Bank at Saveco

While visiting the new Saveco in Qurain I saw this food bank display where you purchase bags of food to be donated to the needy.

Once you've paid for the food bag you put it in the collection bin, I donated one of the 2 KD bags, I wish I knew where the food was distributed but I did my part and I hope any of those visiting Saveco will do their part as well.

American soldier commits suicide on Arifjan

Americans in the news:

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 12, (AFP): An American soldier stationed in Kuwait shot and killed himself on Thursday at a US military base, the interior ministry said. The ministry said in a statement on Twitter that the soldier, who was not named, used his personal gun to kill himself while on duty. The Pentagon confirmed the death of a US soldier in a “non-combat related incident” in Kuwait, without elaborating. The interior ministry said the soldier was rushed to a public hospital in southern Kuwait but was pronounced dead on arrival. Several thousand American soldiers are stationed at Camp Arifjan, a military base about 70 kms (43 miles) south of Kuwait City.

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 12: A female US citizen, believed to be in her 40s, has filed a complaint with the Fintas Police Station accusing a European orthopediatrician working for a private hospital of molesting her, reports Al-Anba daily. In her complaint, the woman told police she is suffering from pain in her legs and the doctor taking advantage of the absence of the nurse touched her private parts.

Health Stop Cafe & Grill

Since I'm back on my protein diet a friend suggested we stop and have dinner at this place. Normally I would not have visited because I know these little off the wall Kuwaiti made places are super expensive but I decided not to argue and try it.

Well, the above picture is what I got for 3.550 KD! Let's see, a bag of 1 kilo chicken breasts cost .990 fils and a handful of green beans can't be much, this is the exact reason why I don't give into the hype. They did have a lot of delivery items going out the door so some people are supporting the business.
