Kurdistan, Iraq

It began with a cold snap and a massive snow storm on Friday. We woke up to a sparkling white world on Saturday.

A violet evening.

All over the city, people came out to play in, with, and around the snow.

I’ve seen scenes like this…of Sweden. But this is Iraq / Kurdistan.
Everyone was playing in the snow. Adults were as excited as children.
Guys smoking shisha in the cold.
The selfie game is strong in Iraq.
