Snow Charlene 3 Feb 2020 journal 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.
