KUWAIT: Kuwait marked the golden jubilee of its constitution with a spectacular KD 4.16-million ($15-million) fireworks display which earned the state a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. “I am happy to verify that with 77,282 fireworks, a new Guinness world record has been set tonight” in Kuwait City, a representative of Guinness World Records announced on Kuwait television at the end of the display. (source: http://news.kuwaittime​s.net …g-display-set-new-record/ (external link))

I was lucky to get a good view at the rooftop of a 20 floor building, during the spectacular fireworks last 10 November 2012 that last for 1 hour. Here are my shots...
