Weekend 4 - The Friday Market
For my last weekend here in Kuwait (Friday, Feb. 29), I decided to visit the Friday Market. I hadn't been there since 2002 so it was worth another visit. The Friday Market is basically a flea market with a lot of stuff for sale: clothing, matresses, carpets, brick-a-brak (fancy word for miscellaneous trash!), watches, furniture, etc. etc. [It's located on the Fourth Ring Road in-between Hyws 60 & 55.] A great place to sample the local culture and pick up some great bargains. But buyer beware!! Everything is negotiable and all sales are final (and as far as I could see, in CASH only)!
