Kuwait City is Aiiight.
For a city with no legal alcohol or dancing - Kuwait City is pretty sick.
The first night we had there we got to check out some hush hush, little-promoted Rooftop Cinema Anime - catching Paprika up in the hot breeze.
I gotta say this blog was what hooked me up with a few juicey gems in Kuwait so bigups to the 2:48am fam for putting in the effort.
I've felt pretty graph deprived by the UAE's squeaky clean policy, it was cool to see some bits and pieces dotted around - and a decent lil skate park too..
The city's even got some MIB style camoflaged UFO's dotting about:
Wifey nearly turned reptilian in the Aquarium thingy:
yeti vs trex:
they even had giant test tubes for giants to carry humans:
Kuwait has one of the dopest resteraunts I've been to: Slider Station - a burger bar, themed like a car workshop, serving really tasty mini burgers via the medium of a yo-sushi style conveyor belt.
Great staff (complete with mechanics jumpsuits), Awesome food, Sweet little vibe.
HIGHLIGHT of the TRIP....
They seem to still love the old school arcades over there.
I found this little gem upstairs in a Lulu centre.
The keen eyed and 80's children amongst you may recognise Yeti getting his youth back with a blast on Stryder:
...and wifey doing damage in whats gotta be the only Ninja / Dog partnership game in history - Shadow Dancer:
Both ultimate classics - and the "built for dwarves" factor of the machines only added to the fun.
All in all - worth a detox trip to search out the gems.
