    What’s really interesting to note is the disappearance of “Lake Sabah Al-Salem.” I remember, and you can see in the photos, the presence of a seasonal “lake” in the Northeast corner of Sabah Al-Salem, right at the end/beginning of the 6th Ring Road. I always thought the water content of the soil there made it basically impossible to build on. Fun fact – the lake had shrimp in it, and I was told that the shrimp eggs in the summer, when the lake was dry, were able to survive somehow. I suppose it must have been true, because I remember riding my bike there and seeing the shrimp for myself. One thing I do know – I would not want to live in that tall apartment complex that is currently being constructed there. But that’s just me.

    With urban development progress, there is reverse progress with treatment of expats.

    Its amazing to see the Airport hasn’t changed a lot since 1984.
    Just shows the kind of foresight we have here.

    The scorched plots of land where the oil field fires that took place in 1991. Just switch back and forth between 90,91 and onwards. Really startling.
