It is an extra long weekend in Kuwait. National Day and Liberation Day (the anniversary of the end of the Iraqi occupation) occur on consecutive days. The roads were full of honking cars last night with people hanging out of the windows waving flags, and covering each other in spray snow. Kuwait showed that it is different from the rest of the middle east there were a few American flags being proudly flown among the hundreds of Kuwaiti flags.
