A Transit in Kuwait

From Dubai, I went back to Abu Dhabi and stayed there for another night. I flew in to Amman taking Al Jazeera airways. It was a connecting flight so I have to transit to Kuwait for a short while.

I was happy to touch down in Kuwait and see its view from the air. I had a conversation with the cabin crew particularly the Filipina who was amazed to see a Filipino passenger in their airline. She was so accommodating. When we landed I went straight to the duty free and checked the Kuwait goods but I just bought some Kuwait dinar to take as souvenir.

State of Kuwait is a sovereign Arab country. Its name was taken from the Arabic term “akwat,” the plural of “kout” which means fortress built near the waters. The emirate has an area of 20, 000 square kilometers with a population of 3.4 million.
