I keep a diary and when i travel, i always find a couple of local newspaper articles to cut out and stick in it. Upon my arrival this morning, i picked a copy of the Kuwait Times, to read that it's "National Day" today - a national holiday to celebrate independence from British occupation (1961) - here's an excerpt from the article:
"The celebrations have transformed into a way that does not reflect affiliation and loyalty to Kuwait and it's history. The festivities have taken up aspects of risk rather than a manifestation of expressing joy and fun, that may develop in the future to reach violence. During the celebrations, foam and water are sprayed on people, which are irresponsible acts that lack the slightest regard for people's health and safety. "
.... holy maloney! This is my kind of festival!
Think i should show 'em how it's done...
Bring on the foam haircuts!
Bring on the bubbles!
And most of all, bring on the snow machines!
