The Date Keeper

I got linked by Josh Rubin: Cool Hunting today so I am expecting many visitors to come who don't live in Kuwait. Thats why for todays picture I decided to go local and you can't get more local then Souk Al Mubarkieh. I like passing by the souk because I used to go there every Friday as a kid when my dad used to pass by this persian carpet store in the souk. I would usually tag along with him but then get bored and wonder off into the souk by myself trying to discover something new. They were like mini adventures for me. Now every-time I pass by the souk I always get happy childhood memories. Today though, I parked in a parking lot I never parked at before. It confused my usual routine and I got lost trying to find the place I wanted to go to. Then, when I did find the place, I got lost going back to my car. The souk is very confusing to navigate through with lots of alley ways that all seem to lead to somewhere interesting. I found a store there that is selling brand new boxed Super Nintendo systems for only KD20 ($60). I keep telling myself to get one but something always comes up. Anyway the picture I took today is of a shop keeper arranging some of the dates he has on display.
