Maboula is a suburb 20 miles to the south of Kuwait City. It one of the sites that big supertankers fill up with oil. Our apartment is located there. It is a rather conservative section of Kuwait, with many beduin families residing there. There are also many expatriate workers living in this area. It is located close to the Arabian gulf and also a fast growing area, with a new mall and many new apartments being built for Kuwaitis.  Welcome to our neighborhood!
