Kuwait Tower

Today we were tourists at the Kuwait Towers! They are striking on the skyline and even more striking close up!





Waiting for the elevator...



Up top! On the drive there my boy kept saying "I not going to be scared Mama." And he wasn't!



"Dis is where we are, up here Mama!"





Yes. Yes I can see Kuwait City!



Do you know what the towers are for? I didn't either. They are actually water towers and one electrical tower. Cool, huh?



"The needle shaped tower controls electricity and illuminates Prestigious Project."



"The middle tower is water storage which takes one million gallons of water."



Our Syrian host/friend pointed out all the sights and of course insisted on paying for everything.



Thank you Bashar!
