The original plan to cross Iraqi into Kuwait proved impossible, so Christine and Gunther had to traverse Saudi Arabia. Both found Kuwait less restrictive than Saudi. By the time they visited, there were few burnt-out oilfields and refineries to remind them of the Iraqi occupation that sparked the Gulf war in the early 1990s. Gunther particularly liked the large number of luridly coloured Hummers and other four-wheel drive vehicles in Kuwait City. Many of Otto’s relatives were also in evidence.
