Town at twilight, somewhere between Dohuk and Sulaymaniyah
Remember this epic sandstorm from the last post?
Well, that was just a taster of what we (Erin at the wheel, Ashley and me passenging) were in for, the rest of the ride in.
The 8 hour journey from Dohuk to Sulaymaniyah was made half in the dark, through windy mountain roads, and a great sea of dust. The dust, thick and persistent as it was, enveloped us in a shroud that made everything outside the car completely surreal, straight out of an episode of the X-Files. Pictures, for your viewing pleasure.
