Construction came a long way, didn’t it? I just wish I had more construction pictures to match to the existing Avenues. I only have enough for two more posts so stay tuned.

Always interesting to see the structure below a pretty building. I have photos of Al-Hamra back from when it was under construction and was willing to do the same with them for a long time. Now you’ve given me a push seeing how the results would turn out :)

Ooooh that would be so pretty to look at! Please do! If you want a photograph helper to check which angles you had on the construction phase let me know, I don’t mind ;)

I am amazed by this post and the one before. I believe you should offer the owners of the mall some copies. It is really unique and speaks for itself. For someone like me, who has never been to that place, such picture represent a promise. A promise for everyone who works hard that he/she will eventually make it and look back at these moments of hardship and despair and feel relieved that they finally reached their goal..

I’m glad you are enjoying the pictures… maybe one day you can visit Kuwait and enjoy walking down the Grand Avenues yourself :)
