returned to Kuwait...

Just returned to Kuwait after 6 weeks travel in the USA and China.

China was as good as always and I never fail to have a wonderful time there... spend 4 days in Beijing visiting galleries and artist's studios... (finally met Ai Weiwei (BTW: I was the first person to start the wikipedia article on Ai Weiwei ))...two weeks at The Pottery Workshop in an artist's residency program in Jingdezhen making porcelain artwork in the birthplace of porcelain... and a quick 5 days checking out art at the ShContemporary Art Fair in Shanghai...

The US was great too... mostly I just visited with family and friends... saw my sister in Portland for the first time in many years... it was great to see her kids, husband and their new log cabin home... Milwaukee- visiting the rest of my family and old friends was good and I even got to go camping and canoeing up North for a few days...

Exhausted from the constant travel and jet-lag but went to a Ramadan Ghabqa dinner sponsored by AUK this evening... the food was abundant and good and it was great to get together with many of my good friends in Kuwait...
