This has to be one of my favourite places in the Gulf. It’s certainly my favourite market. You can find everything imaginable – all within a one-mile radius. This afternoon I had to get my misbah (beads) fixed, and therefore had some time to look around. I stayed within the Mubarakiya area with not enough time to go to the Souq Selah and Soug il Bishoot.
I’m so pleased I finally managed to get the lovely straw-man of Kuwait. Every time I see him there I wish I had my camera. He was very welcoming. Below are a few more shots of the short walk.
