Kuwait

By Alon Calinao Dy: Kuwait, officially known as The State of Kuwait, is a small, rich, and wonderful country in the Middle East. It is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government. It is also believed as the 11th richest country in the world per capita.

Here are some of my pictures in Kuwait. These photos are intended to familiarize people with new surroundings in the country.
This is where I work at Chest Diseases Hospital (formerly known as Kuwait Heart Center) in Sabah Region, a specialized health care facility that treats patients with cardiovascular diseases.
Inside catheterization laboratory, an area of my expertise.

This is a Sri Lankan Catholic Festival. They offer their food products at a low price during this special occasion.
Kuwait City is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the taste of ice cream.
