Remember the balloon ride?
I realized at lunch after seeing this “Life” water, that I’ve been involved in two women’s projects in Iraq with life-giving names– in ICMP, Keshti Jhyan (Ship of Life) and in WV, Jhyan Center (Life Center). #Life
After longing to visit for more than a year, I finally had the chance to go to Kirkuk for some meetings… Snapshots from the drive out of the city… So dusty. #Iraqisummer
Back in Erbil, it’s time for another round of masgouf and fresh bread.
Love the natural essential oils… Rose and lotus and jasmine.
Bazaar… Wander for hours. Tea and incense and mango juice.
Mobbed by a group of ladies after a church service in Coptic Cairo… Selfie time!
Egypt at the Met overlooking Central Park is also magical… Reading about the destruction of Palmyra and Nimrod this summer made me appreciate museums even more…
