No Niche Friday – Indigenous Flowers and Kite flying
Published on February 8th, 2013 | by Nabeel
I had the opportunity to get out into the desert today. Went into Bnaider where Kuwait’s most die-hard Kite enthusiasts fly a squadron of magnificent sea beasts. It was very War of the Worlds-y and as you may or may not know, I’m totally into that whole scene (check my bio at the bottom). You can see these beauties from the highway – and if you do, feel free to stop and relax for a bit. The kite fliers are a welcoming bunch and besides, the desert is practically awash with flowers at the moment.
I was very lucky to be educated on the local flora by a proper botanist who does research in this area. Take a look at the pics below – some of these have been resident in Kuwait far before most of us got here.
