IN ERBIL - ARBIL - IRBIL WHO KNOWS WHAT IS CORRECT - KURDISTAN IRAQ
2 Dollars USA or 2000 Saddam Dinars and you are in Erbil in one hour by a very fast colective taxi!
Reminds me of Mexico and the drivers. I want to put my head out the window and scream,
These Kurdish drivers are crazy on this side of Mosul.
The place is great and there is a great big "TELL" next to me.
They build cities out of adobe brick, when they broke or fell apart, they would flatten the ground
and build a new how on top of the old house. Slowly over the centuries it made huge mound
so lots of cities are on top of hill in the middle of flat areas.
This is one of them word you should learn.
James Michener wrote a book called the "Makers Tell" I believe.
I read it in Thailand. Outstanding history of this area.
