This is my second day in Sulaymaniyah, and my first day out and about.
We visited a lovely park, the
Municipal Park, across the street from the . Students like to visit and eat lunch here. University of Sulaymaniyah
Then on to a.....three story shopping mall. I guess that just goes to show that they are everywhere! Here's a picture of me, and my traveling pack, waiting on a bench in the mall.
Beside me is the small package of Cuban cigars my Traveling Companion was so excited to find. She explained to me that this particular cigar was "the most eagerly-awaited" among "the enthusiasts in the art of smoking." Then she told me I was too young for one, and she didn't really approve of them anyway.
That's when I smelled the Burger House, right across the way.
But she nixed that too, as we were headed to the open bazaar.
We saw bags of dried grains and fruits,
and the most beautiful fresh fruits.
Finally, we headed back home, where I managed to grab one of those cigar things. Definitely not as good as a greenie, or an old bone. I was just sniffing, really.....
tomorrow, perhaps by way of Gibralter....if those Gibralter monkeys don't get me. Erbil, Iraq
