Milcha… Milcha… Milcha..


This was a pressure built up over the summer and over Ramadan, the next couple of weeks are filled with milchas (engagements) and I have a card for almost everyday for the next three weeks. It was an insane day, it felt like work because I just managed to get home and get a quick bite to eat before having to head out an hour later. When you have a milcha know there is going to be traffic where ever your heading because a lot of people are going to be invited there too. I met up with my family and headed to each one with them, except for the last one. You spend the first 10 – 20 minutes either waiting because of the amount of people or saying hello to people you haven’t seen in a while.


Its funny in Kuwait you have friends that you know well but because of work and other things taking up your time you don’t see them as often as you used to, so you start seeing them at all these milchas, one after the other. And no matter how organized the people are there is always going to be a huge amount of traffic. It was like running a marathon, and it was fun seeing people you haven’t seen in a while and just catching up. I’m just happy men just have to wear dishdashas it simplifies things for the guys having to run around.. These are things that I love about Kuwait, even though you are exhausted at the end of the day, its well worth it.
