French Elegance


You have to give it to the French.  Their capital, their roads, their cars, their fashions, I could go on for a while.  One of the ugliest things invented by man is concrete - and even that is beautiful here (at least in some places).  The airport is full of little design ideas offering a quality overall look and good function.  The seats, the natural light and more.  My favoutite is the big neck-friendly board.


I'm not saying this airport is perfect; far from it in fact, but there aren't many boring corners.

I'm on my way home - at Dubai airport - and I just realised that flickr is banned here.  These photographs have to join the files on Wordpress.

France does have some interesting architecture and that is something we are lacking in Kuwait.

The roads are also more fun to drive on!

Yes. We need more. Although some of the new buildings in the city aren't bad. Kuwait Towers are a piece of art.

That's not allowed there either. I hear.
