Kani Masi

Kani Masi was a destroyed Kurdish village. There was a British detachment there and a UN refugee center.

Crash!

As I was going through my slides, I found that some had a black band along the bottom where part of the shutter was not retracting properly. Backtracking through the slides, I found the exact frame where the malfunction occurred.

How Not to Build a Road

Gulf War Image There's a low pass here on the road from Zakho to Begova and Kani Masi because soft red shale has been eroded. Unfortunately, it also crumbles easily, so the road up the pass is in a constant state of near-collapse.
Gulf War Image Looking down, the red shale contrasts conspicuously with the resistant white sandstone.
Gulf War Image The view from the pass is spectacular.

Back to Camp I

We went back to Camp I briefly to attend a UN and NGO meeting

How this Kurdish kid at Camp I happened to get a T-shirt with a molecular diagram of the mineral beryl, in Spanish, no less, and then happen to wear it in front of maybe the only person in theater who would recognize it, is indeed one of life's little mysteries.
