Kuwait's Space Mountain
Does anyone know what they are building behind the International Vet Hospital (IVH) in Ahmadi? It looks like the mountain from "Close Encounters". I asked the IVH staff what they were doing out there and they said that Kuwait is trying to increase tourism. I guess they are planning for skiing (?) Perhaps a "scenic" overlook? This thing has gone up in 3 months time. Whatup?
Further, whatup with the kennels being destroyed at IVH? I was one of those people who gave charitably way-back-when when the prospective kennel annex was to be used for a rescue center. Instead, it was used as a profit center to board police dogs and falcons. Was there legal action involved that had it taken down? Inquiring minds want to know.
