Our trip to a Kuwaiti farm

This morning we took a trip out to a farm about an hour outside of the city. It was nice to actually drive somewhere and feel like we got out for a change. Sam came too but you won't see him in the pictures because the men and women were separate. Many Kuwaitis have farms and spend the weekends on them with a constant stream of guests. I think our experience today is probably typical of what would happen at many farms one might go to here. You spend the first couple of hours chatting, drinking tea, eating snacks. Then you have some coffee which means it is just about time to eat. Buffet style eating is very common in our experiences thus far. After a big meal then you go for a walk around the farm. You end the day with some sweets before the drive back to town.


The drive out to the farm - Desert, Oil and of course McDonalds






I was surprised by the variety in produce



Broccoli, Kale, Zuccini, Strawberries, Green Beans, Peppers, Tomatoes



The Animals - I have never seen cows this big, or goats with such floppy ears, but I was most amazed to see Australian Deer





We were given all this organic produce to take home with us!
