Back from Jordan

Post by Mark

Jordan

I came back to Kuwait last night and I have to say I was pretty disappointed with Jordan. The country is very poor which I found very shocking since I was expecting it to be something of a combination of Lebanon and Kuwait. The King and Queen seem very sophisticated and down to earth which is why its even more confusing why things are the way they are there. The Jordanian people are extremely nice, reminded me a lot of the hospitality of Bahraini people. Things I missed and would like to try the next time I am there: the falafels at Hashem, the burger at Lebnani and the Blouzaat store.

I’m in Jordan

Four Seasons

The Jordanian airport is pretty tiny and very old but somehow they have the same e-gate system Dubai have. They also have Corona in their duty free which gives them a 1-0 over Bahrain. The weather here is pretty cold, I didn’t check the weather from Kuwait because I figured it would be pretty much the same, thats not the case and I am regretting not bringing a jacket with me. I am staying at the Four Seasons which so far is one pretty nice hotel and I’ve got an amazing relaxing view. I have unlimited Internet for the next days I’m here so I will continue to post while I’m here. So far I like this place.

LUSH Fresh Handmade Soaps and Natural Cosmetics

Post by Mark

LUSH Kuwait

Nataly should actually be writing this post but since she doesn’t post much anymore I am going to post about it. We passed by LUSH tonight in Central Plaza which opened not too long ago and the place honestly makes The Body Shop feel like McDonalds. They have some really cool soaps that all smell amazingly good and are very natural and handmade. You buy the soaps per gram and although the prices aren’t cheap its kinda understandable why they cost this much. Although there isn’t anything else in Central Plaza to check out its worth passing by just for LUSH. [Link]

Wrong time, wrong place

Not the best location for a Jazeera Airways ad… right under a picture of a crashed airliner.

Blooming for Life

Post by Mark

I am at The Avenues now and they have flowers and greenary all over the place sponsored by different companies for a Blooming for Life charity thing where all proceeds go to the Red Crescent. I think the mall looks much much better with these flowers everywhere, they should consider keeping them permanantly. (Posted from my Nokia E61i)
