Baseball in Kuwait

In the hopes of creating a community for the kids outside of school/the embassy, we signed up for baseball.  While many things are the same (the names of the teams are MLB teams: Rays, Royals, Pirates and Red Sox), some things are very different.  The "opening day" ceremony, for example.

Notice the carpet and wingback chairs? 

Things guys were serving hot tea and dates

Even had a professional player to kick us off

Fancy gifts for the VIPs

Kuwaiti and US Anthems

The US Ambassador to Kuwait
