Sulaymaniah, Kurdistan, Iraq

A few hours away from the war, a new Dubai is being built right now

People spend 5 minutes to say hello to you. "How is your mother, how is your father, how is your sister, e.t.c". After that, it's time for conversation. 

I leave my table for a while to make a phone call. When I go back, people stand up and welcome me again.

It's the worst place for vegetarians and for non smokers

Do not take a taxi when you have just bought a box full of beers

One of the cleanest cities I've been

Kurdish love to leave the plastic wrap on the new cars, forever

Hiran is my friend, a real princess
