Kuwait Day III

Today we had SO much to do and not a lot of time to do them, so my first “advice” to the girls was to try stick to the schedule as much as possible and get ready to leave when told, and to be honest, I am impressed! I can’t describe how proud I am of my team 🙂

We woke up from 7.30 am and had breakfast then left at 9.00 am to go to the Kuwait House for National Works, Not to Forget Museum, which displays Sadam Hussein’s Regime’s crimes during the Gulf war in 1990 (see images below).

Then we headed to Fatma’s Deewanya and met Mr. Faisal Alyahya, a Kuwaiti lawyer who talked to us about Citizenship and how it should be implemented in the Islamic world. We also discussed with him the idea of multiple identity’s and its relation to citizenship and also how constitutions preserve citizens rights (see images below).

After that we had lunch at Nino’s on Gulf Street then we headed straight to the She’eb Park to try out their famous 60-m high jump. The feeling on that ride was incredible. At first you fall (more like plunge) into the ride then you get a flying sensation. It was nice (see image below).

We then headed back to the hotel to get ready for the conference opening, which lasted till 10.45 pm.

Back to the hotel, everyone was too tired to stay up a little longer, so we decided to call it a night.

See you tomorrow y’all!
