Out & About in Iraq!


These concrete pyramids are called “Yugos.” I tried to figure out a little more about them… all  I came up with was, “The Yugo. The bunkers Saddam had built to protect the military elites on base. These areas are usually off limits for military personnel, but some of them have been modified to serve as office space.” These things are all over the place on COB Speicher! (They currently house junk and are ‘sealed’ shut.)

“Off Limits”

There is Tennis court and the bombed-out swimming pool’s diving board  in this one. Its behind our office building.

Rainbow in Iraq (in front of my old LSA (Living area))

I’ll have to get some better pictures of this one! To the right of this picture is a soccer stadium.
