My Apartment

Here are a few pictures of my apartment. This is a typical teacher apartment in my building, although many teachers buy their own furnishings, particularly if they are staying several years. My building is owned by my school, but there are several other buildings where teachers from our school live.

Here is the tour…

Here is a view from my window on the 5th floor.

Where in the World is Kuwait?

Located in the Middle East, Kuwait is an oil-rich, desert country.   The country is very small compared to Canada, with a distance of about 200 km from the SE to NW end. The estimated population of the country is close to 3.5 million, including about 1.3 million non-nationals. Approximately 83% of the population lives in Kuwait City, while the remainder live in surrounding desert and coastal towns.
