Finally after almost twelve years of living in Kuwait I visited Failika (Failicha) Island with a group led by Dr. Hasan Ashkanani (@has_ashkanani), assistant professor of anthropology and archaeology at Kuwait University. Dr. Hasan invited me and I knew I would get hands on information about the archaeological sites. It's almost impossible to visit the sites unless you are granted special permission and even that permission can be revoked at any second.
There were 30+ people attending the trip by private boat as the usual boat he uses was due for maintenance and what an adventure it turned out to be! The trip was 1 hour and 15 mins to the island and the sea was a bit rough.
This will be a 3 part series of posts, there was so much to see and take in that one post wouldn't do justice.
