Why Kuwait Part 2

In Why Kuwait Part 1 I wrote about my desire to teach abroad. Part 2 will be about how I ultimately made the decision to choose Kuwait.

When I was searching for overseas teaching jobs on Teach Away, everybody was talking about Dubai. I heard that Dubai was like Disneyland for adults.
