Talk to most people around the World, tell them you are from Kuwait and they will automatically assume one or more of the following things:
- have an Oil Well at the bottom of your garden
- drive either a Mercedes or a BMW
- employ a small army of Servants
- and of course……you own and maintain a Palace
Whilst all of these ‘facts’ are of course absolute nonsense, it’s undeniable that Kuwaiti’s in particular, enjoy a privileged lifestyle thanks to the ‘cradle to the grave’ welfare system provided by the Government.
That’s why these pictures which I took of an apartment in Salmiya may come as a shock to most people. Members of a prominent Kuwaiti family lived here and vacated the premises a mere 4 Days (YES THAT’S FOUR DAYS) earlier.

WARNING: I would advise you NOT to look at these pictures if you are about to take your morning snack or consume any food……
No one will deny that there are poor families in Kuwait, but levels of hygiene on display here are simply unacceptable by anyones standards…..I feel sorry for the children.
