A visit to the Red Fort

23 November 2013

Got up early and took a taxi to the AWARE center in order to get the bus to the Red Fort.

We spent the morning going into rooms set up as museum rooms at this fort. We went up narrow stairs with no railings to get to the roof tops and learned a bit more history of Kuwait. This fort was to guard against invasions from the desert. Other forts were to guard against invasion from the sea.
