Kuwait Seaside Chalet

Kuwait is situated on the Arabian gulf. So there is much property on the water. If you go south, there are chalets that many people use to get away on the weekend.

My friend Fatma invited the family to the chalet one Saturday afternoon. The kids had great fun.




Here is the back of the chalet.




The kids had fun playing a game with Fatma.

Quite a cool day, however it was February.





The kids were getting a little bored so I decided to teach them to sand sculpt.
I am not very good, but good enough for the kids.



Dante is concentrating hard on his project.



This is Talyn's collection. I helped a bit with the name.



Talyn was proud of his work.



Talyn is enjoying the sand.

A peaceful day after all.
At night we played villagers and wolves. It is a party game where you have about 12 people in which 4 people are wolves. Each round the wolves will kill a villager, while the villagers also have a round to kill a wolf. The reason it is tricky is that no one knows who the wolves are. Villagers must keep their eyes closed while the wolves decide who to eat. The villagers kill a wolf by voting the wolf off. There is a very heated round where people are accused of being a wolf, and the accused will try to argue that they are innocent. Sometimes the villagers get it wrong. The game hinges on how well you influence and con others. The game ends when all the wolves are killed or the number of villagers equals the number of wolves left. Nyssa did very well in the game.
