Work experience in Kuwait

The work experience was a culture shock, as I was able to travel to Kuwait, the oil rich country, where the Arabs flash their cash like it's nobody's business. Thursday evenings, which is similar to Fridays in South Africa, was quite the experience, as all roads lead to shopping malls (they don't really have a night life due to it being an Islamic country). Men on their motorbikes, expensive ones I may add, with no helmets go speeding up to the ladies driving in traffic hoping to get a number. Kids are excited because they are going out for dinner, and young adults act all "cool" as they head to the nearest Starbucks for coffee. This experience was a real eye opener, and as fun as it was, it had me puzzled and strangely longing to be in a westernised society. I got that when I flew to Bahrain for the annual Visa Run, and at the companies expense managed to go clubbing, have a few drinks and eat some bacon too.
