    Dear Ayman,

    Thank you very much for posting such outstanding
    photographs of Kuwait’s history.

    God bless you for your love and the love of sharing which
    enabled me to see Kuwait in yester years – how simple –
    how humble – modernization has surely taken away all
    the past history and glory of Kuwait
