Rains in Kuwait 2009

So for those of you who haven't been to Kuwait yet, thought I'd give you a glimpse of when it rains. Video recording while driving definitely falls under the ambiguous law here of not doing anything else while driving, so the shaky video above and below is attributed to the fact that I was nervous a cop would speed up along me. As you can see, which I failed to notice earlier, the wiper on the right is already acting funny.

The one time I need to use the wiper in Kuwait, this is what happens to it.

Låt den rätte komma in

So since I'm apparently getting old and had no party scheduled for this weekend, I decided to go check out cinemagic again, their second showing since they begun playing their terrace top movie nights. Last week it was a dreary two hour twenty minutes Russian movie called The Banishment. Beautiful scenes and all that, but the lack of monologue and the plot moving slower than a newborn snail, left many of us pulling our hair out through the movie, one follicle at a time.

Yesterday, they played this swedish movie, inexplicably the Swedish version too even though there was an english audio version just pleading to be clicked. The movie was about the young boy who falls in love with a vampire girl. A few cool scenes in it, but definitely nothing for those of you who like glorified Hollywood vamps. Winter slipped in while we watched the movie it seems, with sudden gusts that were quiet enough but unsuccessful as it dropped down empty paper coffee cups that swirled around noisily. Shivers while we watch our protagonists in the snow. An apt ambience for a vampire movie, and it was a good thing I wasn't at home watching television as I would have changed the channel and missed a movie of a changed and relaxed pace instead of a packed Hollywood roller coaster.
