I'm super tired today because the air conditioning in my room went out and I couldn't sleep all day. On top of that my roommate who apparently "isn't much of a sleeper" decided walking around for hours and eating super crunchy cereal was a terrific idea.
Anyway, someone asked me, since I've been here for 5 months, are there any parts of Iraq to avoid while on vacation? That's easy. All of it. Even if everything calms down and one wanted to see the hundreds of cultural sites here, I would really discourage it. I mean, who really needs to see a country who's major exports and sand, dirt, and sandy dirt?
