Kuwait: Americaninkuwait, I don't understand?:

Good morning Porch, This is from my personal Blog, that post was based on a personal circumstances, in the US I used to own my own business, and in the US you could say your mind to anyone, that is how Americans are. In Kuwait I work for a large corporation and it is stressful somewhat. In Kuwait or any other non-US country it is not the same case. You would see things that you might like or agree upon, but that's how things are outside the states. To some expats these things would be irrelevant, to others it is irritating. It is what you make out of it. But all in all, Kuwait is a good place to work for on many levels. If you are not sure about working in Kuwait, why not come here for a visit first and find for yourself, or maybe have a list of questions I'm sure I or other members can answer them for you. Cheers, AIK http://americaninkuwait.blogspot.com

Kuwait: Moving to Kuwait in January 2009:

Dear Porch, Are you single? any children? I think that's a good package. Kuwait is cheap compared to the states, and I lived in a pretty cheap place (Birmingham, AL) Grocery shopping in Kuwait is like 100-200 KD/Month. Gas is like 25-50 KD/Month Utilities 30-50KD/Month Then you get your dinning out expense. All in all it is a pretty good place to save money, compared to Dubai or other neighboring countries. Kuwaities Love Americans, and there are plenty of Americans in Kuwait. The only dangerous thing about Kuwait that freaks me out is TRAFFIC! I hate driving in Kuwait to the point I avoid it. Car Accident mortality is high in Kuwait. There are some crazy drivers in this town. No drinking of course, that's a bummer, but people get around it, I didn't learn that yet. Visit my Blog for more info about Kuwait. Cheers and Welcome to Kuwait. AIK http://americaninkuwait.blogspot.com
