This will be the first of a small series of photos from Duhok, a Kurdish city sitting inside a mountain range in Northern Iraq. This first photo is myself in a Souk (market) in the early morning just as the shops were opening for the day. I would compare Duhok to similar developing cities you might find in Central America. No quite first world yet, but you can still find Johnny Walker Black Label so we are not talking about the savage nations in the heart of darkness either.
I’ll put up some more pictures of Kurdistan later, it was definitely a fascinating place to visit.
