Thousands of dead oysters, crabs and sea cucumbers washed ashore at Khiran.

Extremely alarming news in the Kuwait Times today. Whilst MPs are busying themselves with the negative effects of Halloween on Kuwaiti society there are very worrying environmental disasters occurring that may have contaminated food sources in the sea.

I have a few choice words none suitable for print!



  1. this is truly alarming!

  2. I haven't eaten anything from the sea or gone swimming since the sewage plants malfunctioned 2 years ago.

    1. Sensible idea Sandra. I only swim if we go to Kubar Island where the water is gorgeous, but for how long? And I try to avoid eating local fish if I can sometimes it's impossible to avoid if you're invited for lunch and it's maid and zubaidi. If this was a poor country I could understand these violations and distinct lack of interest - but it's not and it's shameful!


Always great to hear from you :O)
