"Don't complain - You could be in Angola" Baghdad by hjohnso4

Baghdad Travel Guide: 116 reviews and 314 photos

Baghdad has seen better days. It is a run-down city even by Middle Eastern Standards. With few exceptions I was reminded of Morrocco. The natives aren't very warm these days and are busy at the time-honoured Arab occupation of Fratricide. I would love to see Baghdad in five years and see what, if anything, will have changed.

    I Am at a loss for words. My one Grandfather was the first Cdn military peace keeper in the Gaza strip, and my other Grandfather is a Mennonite pacifist. I am torn between the two sides. I respect and detest at the same time. Suzanne
