In 1979, when my mom first landed in Kuwait, she was amazed at the religious intensity of the nation.
She ran around the airport asking all the reverent fathers for their blessings, as she's come to a new country speaking a new language, to start of her career, her life...
Only when she reached her hostel, made new friends and got talking did she realize, that all the men in white, she asked for blessings were nothing, but regular arab men!
oh well, life is an adventure! :D
The national wear of Kuwaiti men (arab men, at large) is a long white tunic called the 'Dishdasha'.
Their traditional wear, goes on to show how hot the country is. The turban originally was a protective shield from the unforgiving rays of the sun, and the color white reflects light and heat, keeping the body cool.
whereas, the women, traditionally, wear a long black loose cloak, over whatever they're wearing,
depicting their modestly, covering from head to toe.
the new age, fashion forward ladies, get the same "abaya" , in a more figure hugging, form fitting silhouette.
ANYHOOOO, this is how kuwait seems black and white and shades of brown.
(watch my video "Wanna go for a drive?" on youtube to know more about the brown.. :) )
Now no body can argue about the fact that Black and white is a classic combination!
Thanks for reading.. See you soon :)
