What Places Do You Remember Fondly From Childhood?
There is a place, like a theme park and rides, games etc, called Entertainment City in Kuwait that my family and a lot of other families took their children to. This was during the 80s which is when my family & I used to go there. It was our Disneyland and we kids all loved going there and enjoying the rides and games and yes the food at the food court. I also enjoyed the beaches in Kuwait which my family, uncle, aunt and cousin used to go to on a regular basis when we were living there. There was also a small park that was nearby which was a good place to go in the evening and sit on the grass and eat some snacks and enjoy a cold drink.
I also miss the small shopping centers near our apartment and the playground and the old parking lot where a bunch of my friends and I went to play football in. I miss the building my family & I lived in with good friends and neighbours who all helped and enjoyed each other’s company. We had lots of parties and functions and a few trips to parks or beaches and hosted lots of games. The rooftop parties with games & presents for kids as well as adults as well as stuff like Bingo, followed by great food (and drink for the adults) followed by a movie or two played on a projector screen in the late evening were highlights of my childhood and I miss them so great and look back upon them fondly.
The silly games we kids played and the fun we had all seem like a another lifetime.
