Here's a vlog from my ten days exploring Iraq, from Baghdad to Basra.

Iraq has been in the news for all of the wrong reasons for the last couple of generations. During my trip, I was met with great warmth and hospitality, found rich history and culture, and a lot of great food.

Hey Ric, thanks for sharing your video โ€” really enjoyed watching your tour, and interaction with the locals! How hot was the weather while you were there? (e.g. on a Bangkok scale)

Thanks Ian. Bangkok scale? Iraq was like a pleasant Thai winter day ... like 26 during the day and around 18 at night time. This was in November ... a great month to visit.
