Kuwait serves as an initial base for troops entering Iraq. While the facilities in Kuwait aren't Club Med, there's certainly enough to keep everyone occupied. I could go on about the multitude of fast-food facilities, the quality dining facility, but I won't. Nor will I talk about the Halloween party at the USO (that was certainly a highlight, particularly when the British people showed up). I'll praeiterate the quality of the on-post gym, too.
Rather, I think this sums up the quality of life in Kuwait.
Okay, so it was about $3.50 for a Venti Coffee and about $4.70 for a Venti Capuccino, but in the middle of the desert, I'd say it's worth it. And if you think I'm a coffee snob, consider that most men would rather wake up to coffee than women.
