yesterday we were able to go to the green zone, a secure part of bagdad and the heart of iraq. we were able to get a decent haircut, eat good food and yes we even went swimming. 2 years ago if you would have told me i would be swimming in a war zone much less be in a war zone i would have laughed at you. evrything in this palace was amazing...huge 60 foot vualted ceilings with amazing designs, gold and marble everywhere. one of the pics is us in one of his rooms. gold couches and a copper like mirror room. i felt like i was at a disco haha.
I saw a poster on a wall about an art exhibt in new york where local iraqi artist's painted their version of the "shock and awe" in the kick off of the war in iraq. it would have been kinda cool to see that. i thought about christie, she would have liked to see that, but shes too busy saving the world in burma haha.
