We stopped by Avenues for the birthday girl and recommended check out the Food Market currently being held in the back part behind Al Forno Italian restaurant. What a nice place! The area is surrounded by waterfalls, plants and trees. There are several different booths offering food, coffee and sweets, a cozy place to take someone.

We headed out for a road trip the Heritage Village that I really wanted to visit. I thought it might compare to the Global Village in Dubai but sadly it didn't. It was long trip and the weather was so dusty, our luck! We finally arrived to an area in the middle of the desert, it looked like an awesome set up and we had planned on spending the day there.
The Kuwaiti museum included items from Dr. Ashkanani's museum and he was there giving a tour in Arabic which my friends could not understand so we headed off to the other areas. There were museums from the GCC- Oman, KSA, Bahrain, Qatar (which was closed, not cool!) and UAE I assume although I didn't see their museum.

My favorite historian Dr. Hasan Ashkanani has an exhibit in the Heritage Village in Salmi. I am lucky enough to be invited to join him and his group soon in visiting the exhibit, my first trip to Salmi.

I never thought I would come across an old Kuwaiti house in Abu Hasani considering how expensive the land is but I found this beautiful place close to the beach and I can only imagine what it was like when people lived there. The land is huge, enough for 3 houses and it is just open with three old structures and a new modern style chalet being built by the sea.

I always like to go to areas and drive around to see what I can find. I came across this cute little park next to the beach in Abu Hasani. It was nice and clean, probably because no one knows about it. If you do visit please clean up after yourselves and treat the equipment as if you paid for it so that others can enjoy as well.

My friend and I had lunch at Applebee's the other day, they have daily lunch specials for 3.500, they hid the lunch menus because they were raising it to 3.750 and had yet to produce the new ones. The waitress handed us the new menus which we all know means new prices. This was the case, they have raised their prices again.
