Thank you very much for these pictures.
Feels like the city and the country are recovering from this awful decade.
Hope this country which used used to be one of the most advanced of the arab world and the "3rd world" 40 years ago will again stand among others.
Hope the best for its people.

Awesome photos! Baghdad looks like a fascinating place. Hopefully it'll calm down, so we tourists can see it firsthand.

I also went to two cities south of Baghdad, Kufa and the Holy City of Najaf. Both are located approximately 160km south of Baghdad.



Kufa

The Imam Ali Mosque, built in 977, is the third holiest moqsue for the Shias. These are exterior pics, we were not allowed to take pics inside.
