on travel technology …and everything else
This “Ghost Busters” van was parked outside a garage in Sharq. Quite a site to see in Kuwait. Wonder if they get any business. The only haunted house I’ve heard of in Kuwait is one that existed along the 30 in Salmiya. Anyone care to share their ghostly experiences?
I came across this pillow at Home Center. Its called the Sound Asleep pillow and has built-in speakers. You can plug your ipod or other music player to this before going to sleep! I know of a few people who only get sleep when music is playing in the background. But the way I see [...]
Noticed this on my way to work. This guy was reading the paper while driving. The paper was all the way across the front of the wheel!!! (not too clear in the photo) Must be driving the new KITT (Knight Rider).
Just the day before I posted about a lunchbox I ordered. Today I ordered one from Casper and Gambinis. Its been a while since I ordered their lunch box meal and I must say they have improved the packing for one thing. It used to come in a big white box previously. The meal is [...]

The freak dust storm we had yesterday seemed to have caused a big hoarding to crash onto the circle by the Al-Dhow tower in Sharq. Caught this on my way home. Lots of cops and workers with gas tanks chopping away but no cars seen damaged.
This is a followup to yesterday’s post on the car wash. Just thought I’d mention these folks in Sharq. They are located opposite the Alghanim garage [link]. I usually get my car washed here. The main reason is because they are very fast. This is an area with a lot of car wash centers and [...]
