Souq Sharq is one of the additions to the Kuwait sea-side and one of many malls that have come up along the waterfront in the past few years. The malls here also have recreational facilities and most have marinas as well as beautiful promenades to walk along. Not just the mall itself but the entire area is developed in keeping with the idea of providing recreation to Kuwaitis and Expats alike. There are theatres shops restaurants a food court etc.

Ah so this is Souq Sharq. You mentioned this to me a few days ago. I thought you ment a traditional souq in the east of the city. A taxi driver brought us there on mid-day but told us is was going to open later that day. Then he brought us to this mall you just photographed. What a aweful place! x-:
My friend and me had some fun at the bookstore though. There was a bookstand with autobiographies of famous leaders: Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama, Bill Gates, etc. On the front of the bookstand there were the bestsellers and these were the autobiographies of the president of Iran (forgot his name) and the leader of Hezbollah (forgot his name too). We thought it was funny that they sold better. In the west these two gentleman are projected by the media as evil. So we were photographing each other standing in front of the bookstand, pretending reading these 'evil' books. Security came up and told us to to stop and go take picture of the christmas tree. We told him we hate christmas and than we were allowed to take just one more picture. (: Well... it was funny to us. Gilbert
