Yup – in the air again – on what I hope will be my last visa-related flight: the one where I get my family visit visa at the end.

And I must say, after all the uncomplimentary things I heard about the Kuwait airport, at least the Qatar Airways Lounge was nice. Kinda wanted to see if the aqua velvet couches could fit in my hand luggage. The rest of the terminal was fine – cigarette smoky at points, and the bathroom was ludicrously small, but at least it was bright (unlike what is now the old Muscat airport, which was always strangely dark in the terminal).
