Aside from what’s obviously rendered and modernized, [Kuwait City] to the naked eye is a bunch of glassy (beautifully lit in the evening) skyscrapers & concrete buildings that blend into each other without any specific detailing. Occasionally, and while briskly driving through, I notice- I’m sure as well as you have also dear reader- a lot of [rundown] estates. Buildings that are only standing on a couple of nailed poles until further demolition notice.
Why is it that such beautiful foundations are being totaled to the ground without a second thought?
Why isn’t the country’s past, the stories behind the windowsills, the vintage architecture and all of Kuwait’s old essence being preserved?
So many questions, followed by so many hurried foot steps to catch onto what’s left.
My sister and I decided to make this a routine escapade. I will try to bring to your attention & amusement as much as [the old city] remainders would offer- I’ll let the pictures tell you their tales.. every wall is a wonder.
Our feet today took us about the streets of [Sharq, شرق] and [Al-Sawabir, الصوابر] this fine chilly noon.
– Sharq, شرق
And until we [stop & stare] again; have a good day, everyone!
