Yo Quiero Taco Bell! Taco Bell has landed in Kuwait!

TACO BELL is here! Friday marked the grand opening of Taco Bell in the Avenues food court. Finally we are getting somewhere with fast food. My mom was there along with the other hundreds of people waiting for Taco Bell. I can just picture the crowds of people at lunchtime on a Friday during vacation days. That's one time I would have to force myself to go there during the weekend and that would be for Taco Bell. She ordered the Chalupas and they served them with fries? Taco Bell in US doesn't serve fries but oh well at least we have tacos.

They are missing the Mexican Pizza and Pintos n' Cheese. But overall my mom said it tasted the same as the states. No more having to go to Arifjan for tacos woohoo. I just wish they would bring it closer to Fintas area as I hate to go to the Avenues because of the distance and crowds. Now if we could get Wendy's and Arby's or the ultimate place Wal-Mart then I would never leave Kuwait.

Think outside the bun hehe!

The Fair

The Fair came to town during the last two weeks of October. It's something we used to wait for with anticipation when we were kids. I must say it was more expensive than when I was a kid, their sign states that due to high gas prices the prices have increased. Of course I had to take the kids as my youngest hasn't experienced a fair since she grew up in Kuwait.

I get my kids the unlimited ride wristband thinking they would have a great time riding the rides, yeah right my kids turn out to be lazy and afraid. I guess the breakfast we had before going didn't treat my son well after going on one of the spinning rides. His excuse for not riding anything else was his stomach. Kids these days are so different than when I grew up. We used to ride all the rides five or six times while at the fair. Oh well I tried.

After the breakfast settled down some I treated the kids to dipped apples and a fried snickers for myself. I was going to try the fried twinkie but I knew it wouldn't sit well later on. There was so much food to choose from like chicken on a stick to fried alligator. After some rain and 3 hours I gave up on trying to get them to ride anything and called it a day.

I guess the closest thing to a fair or amusement park would be Entertainment City. UAE is building a huge amusement park which I can't wait to visit but not in the summer. Maybe next winter.

Fried Snickers, yes there is a snickers bar in the middle of that!

One more roller coaster

The Ferris wheel, not touching that one!


The biggest Indian bull I have ever seen!

These animals were in the petting zoo. Something that you would never find in Kuwait.
