Kuwait only has two seasons, Sayf and shitaa. I say 'only' -
but this means that there are six whole months in which 
you can enjoy the outdoors. And those six months are not
in summerThe time to be in Kuwait is in the winter.

As most of Kuwait borders the water, the outdoors life is all
about the sea. It's this way now as it's always been. So no
big surprise that the Arabian Gulf has shaped the country's 
identity and heritage with its pearl diving, fishing, transporting
of cargo and supplies...

And by offering the ideal location for a bath?

Perhaps this idea is far-fetched, but could it be a coincidence
that the verbs 'to wash' and 'to swim' are exactly same word
in the Kuwaiti dialect?
