Pictures from Kuwait City!

Today was my first venture into the city during daylight hours. I wanted to visit the protestant church that is downtown, so I was brave and called a driver (taxi) to take me! After 4 phone calls back and forth with the driver who wanted directions to my apartment (which unfortunately I could not give since I have absolutely no idea where I live)...he finally found me. After about a dozen u-turns in the downtown area, we finally found the church! I was able to attend an English-language service, which is attended by people from a variety of backgrounds- including americans, canadians, brits, indians, philippinos, germans, and many others. It's really an incredible experience to sit in that room with people from so many different parts of the world. I met an American couple who took me to lunch, and then drove me all the way back to my apartment! Along the way, I got to take a few pics of the city. I'm posting a few for your viewing pleasure- there are several pictures of the marina, as well as a few of the city and the tall towers that are a famous part of the Kuwaiti cityscape. Kuwait City is nestled up against the Persian Gulf, and is one of the best natural harbors in the region. Enjoy the pictures!
