Kuwait in a snapshot.

The oil rich land of Kuwait is a country that draws workers for its very strong Dinar currency and because the government pays its citizens so well they do not need to work.   Kuwait city is a marvelous oasis of trees, green, beautiful buildings, luxurious malls, and paved walkways along the gulf coast.  Just an hours drive out of the city the desert expanse begins, unending flat vistas of sand, and stubborn, adaptive life forms.
