Errand in Zakho

Although I had thought of the mountains as remote, it was only an hour from the British Marine camp to Zakho and we frequently made return trips.

Another view of the notorious sliding hill. The red shale is obvious on the far side of the valley.

The Road to Nazdour

At Begova, a side road made a spectacular climb over the mountains north to a former village near teh Turkish frontier named Nazdour.

These red lentils were dyed to indicate they'd been treated with a mercury-based fungicide. They were for sowing only, not for eating. We suspected some deaths in the mountains may have been related to eating these lentils. It's also possible they were just dumped because people realized they were not safe to eat.
