I'm glad to see new people joining in! I haven't had time to check here lately, but I'm glad to see you all have been busy!

Wow, what an interesting looking place. Hopefully I will have time to look around in a bit.

Barbara

Battle of Najaf, between Muqtada-al-Sadr's Medhi army and US forces took place in this cemetery. Effected a change in the political landscape of Iraq.

You're up.
