First day ~ Erster Tag
Hi friends!
The dogs and me reached Kuwait safely.
We are still chilling this weekend. Next week I will give you some details :)

So far, I like it here. It's not too warm yet and the surroundings are alright too.
It reminds me a little bit of Korea, just…

We, the doggies and I, hubby had to work again :(, have been at the beach this morning.
The one right in front of our house is just a big trash dump. Sad.
But 10 minutes walking from here is a nicer one. We have walked around there a little bit only, but…

Let's go into the sunset.... ~ Lass uns in den Sonnenuntergang gehen...
Not really a sunset though, but it looks like it ;) Try to catch two happy dogs running around...my camera is just too slow for that ;)

Today we tried the other direction but didn't find another beach (besides the private one at the Hilton, grmpf). So we…

Apartments, apartments and more apartments.....

Apartments, apartments and more apartments.....
Wherever I went in the last few days you see apartments. How many are they going to build? Whom do they expect? This part here is called Fahaheel and seems to be quite new. The part where we live in is still mainly under construction.
I don't know what t…

Going to work ~ Auf dem Weg zur Arbeit

Going to work ~ Auf dem Weg zur Arbeit
Most of these workers either live in tents in front of the construction site or in the construction site itself. I've even seen cages with chicken in them.
These guys came from somewhere else with the bus, but there was a big tent with laundry in front of…

Go pray, my friend - Geh beten, mein Freund

Go pray, my friend - Geh beten, mein Freund
Wherever there is the place for you to do so.

Some people go to the beach, some do it in the Supermarket, with radio prayers, while working.
Fine with me :)

This is a mosque in our neighborhood. I almost know the prayer times by now ;)

Loneliness - Einsamkeit
Let the loneliness take over the planet

Let it get rid of it's occupants
as long as they don't care about her

Ajuma - or the walk down the memory lane (1)
I am cleaning my archives in the attempt to maybe finish my back-up CDs any time soon.
I still have to do all 2005, but I am working on the ones from Korea from this year first.

It's kind of hard in a way. So many memories. I have seen these places and p…

Dogs Life - or the walk down the memory lane (2)
A dogs Life in Korea is still one of the worst you can imagine.
They spend it either as a toy, with died hair, at a short leash at the front gate of the houses, in cages to soon be food or as stray dogs because they are no longer cute, left behind by for…

The end of a cock - or the walk down the memory lane (3)
Like here in Hungary, butchering in private is still a normal thing in the rural areas.
Here I could watch one of my neighbours killing a cock

Nice fence and yard - or the walk down the memory lane (7)
In my experience in the rural little town we lived in, the people either were very clean or they didn't bother to pick up any trash.
They also used all kinds of stuff that other people threw away for trash. I saw a lot of interesting fences for example.

Traditions - or the walk down the memory lane (4)
Almost every country has some sort of Traditions.
In Korea it's the "Leave the shoes outside the house"
A good tradition in a way, because the streets are always very dusty and dirty and who once had to clean a house in Korea knows what I mean.

Then and now - or the walk down the memory lane (8)
What always amazed me about Korea, no matter if it was Seoul or our small town, was the old and new, modern and old contrast.
