david comes to town } day two

because he said 'please'. i was gently coaxed by david to take a detour into the hamra shopping mall. i'd already been twice before but i figured he was the guest and i was the chauffeur/host/fixer. so i obliged

I know I’m posting these so belatedly, but I want them to be on my PGB record. And what better way to capture the Spirit of David than these photos taken around Kuwait. So this is how the day went: Al-Hamra Shopping Mall at 10 where David nearly got a heart attack upon approaching the Panerai store. I didn’t know about his soft spot for luxury until then. After an espresso (for him) at the store and a few poses with the Shop Attendant Kamran, we left to check out the rest of the mall. Then to Mubarakiya from 11:00-2:00 and finally back to the desert for more photos. By the end of Sunday I was exhausted and my feet were on the verge of disowning me. But what a rejuvenating, re-energizing and recharging two days they were. Thank you, Mr. Daud for taking this detour. It did me lots of good.

      • Well, and busy. In the process of selling my home as well as my mothers so that we can move into a one story home together. She turns 90 and still climbs stairs to her bedroom. So this will be the year of packing packing packing and finding a new home for both of us.
