I can buy a satellite telephone here for 625 dollars US.

I would have to buy cards to use the call time.

It is the only way to call between Mosul and Arbil.

Arbil is about 1 hour away, and not available with land lines.

Very strange. Makes me know how separated Mosul is from the

Kursdistan. I am bouncing really between two countries.

The land under Saddams former rule (Mosul) and the land under

the rule of Kurdistan.
