Cool photos! ;)

Take lots of photos and zoom in on the small things...they usually leave the biggest impact... to me at least.

Being there for a bit now.... describe some of your observations on that society... weather...vegetation?

Thanks, here is a breif description of some of Kuwait, the link to the thread has some more info:

OK, maybe I was a little harsh on Kuwait.

There are some good things about, mainly the uninhabited regions. For the last week I have been working on a place called Bubyan Island, it's near the Iraqi border at Umm Qasr. It's a huge sediment deposit at the mouth of the Euphrates River.

I never wanted to go here because it used to be the Allied Drop zone during the Gulf War. Before landing on the Aircraft carriers, planes would have to drop their excess fuel tanks and munitions here. So, there are munitions everywhere. I once drove a hovercraft across the Island in the fall and the whole time I was dodging munitions. However, where I have been working recently it's not that bad and I don't really care anymore.

The Island is a huge intertidal zone which stretches for several kilometers. During the high tide, half of the Island is submerged under water. However, as soon as the tide starts to pull out of the inlets, a uninhabited, desolate landscape is all of a sudden filled with life. With the tide out, mud flats stretch for several kilometers and bedrock and coral out crops pop up everywhere. If you are in the mud, you are surrounded by thousands of friendly sea crustations, like crabs and mud skippers.

When the tide comes back in, the inlets fill up within minutes. For a while the inlets are nothing but mud and biological life everywhere. However, it only takes a couple of minutes before the inlets are inundated with water again. You can turn your back for a couple of minutes and than you look back and there is a huge body of beautiful turquoise water as far as you can see. Absolutely stunning!

I really learned to appreciate this place within the last couple of days. This is a place that has been untouched for thousands of years. It is a beautiful and pristine place where no person has yet to negatively impact. I'm one of a hand full of people in the world who have experienced this place.

The sad thing is that Kuwait has plans to develop this area into a free-trade zone. Essentially it will be filled with hotels, casinos, hookers, and booze. It will be filled with garbage and pollution. Wildlife that is unique to the world will be destroyed. The Kuwaitis see this place as a wasteland or just a big pile of mud. They will never appreciate the pure beauty of it.

Nice pictures man

I don't think i've ever seen pics of Kuwait other than those images of oil fires after the gulf war. Nice to actually see what the city and those flats look like.

Thanks!

They are pretty unique. Not many people have been to these areas.
Before I came here, I searched the internet for photos on Kuwait and could not find shit. You really have to go out of your away to find beauty in this place.

Yea, those are land mines. If you step on them, they shoot up into the air and kill or seriously injure anyone in a close vicinity.

We had to have these Bangladeshi UXO (Unexploded Ordinance) specialists with us to check if the coast was clear.

I'm sorry that you have to click the link to see the photos, I guess I'm not technically inclined enough to figure this stuff out.:confused:
