Amid the good news of an uptick in economics, a reduction of violence, and a hope for a more democratic and unified nation after the upcoming elections some young Iraqis sneak back for a visit to family and friends:
Back from Baghdad, speaking Iraqi for 3 days straight :) no bombs and no bullets sound, no elect and no water GREAT! Relative to 2005 its amazing, relative to the world its hopless.. Tip for all: Never Take PIcture of the Police or Army, or else ull be chaced and gone! Posting the pics soon..
Well im glad i wasnt the only one with the camera issue... i just played the pictures in front of them and told them it was deleting :P
It is, of course, situational and varies from province to province, neighborhood to neighborhood, and day to day. May 2010 bring more peace, security, and employment. Insha'allah.
