Lately I have been fascinated in getting to know about countries that always have negative publicity in the Media. I did something on Africa and decided to know more about Iraq and was simply left speechless.

The picture I always have of Iraq is war,tunkers,guns ,soldiers,demolished buildings, death everywhere but what I didn’t know was it also had so much beauty. So i began my research on Iraq that picture is of a shopping mall in Iraq called Majid Mall,it is amazingly beautiful,the inside is spectacular with various stores inside.

The tourist attraction from Lake Habbaniyah that is so beautiful especially when the sun sets down is a place to die for visiting. Hanging Gardens of Babylon,Great mosque of Kufa,victory Arch and the Baghdad tower just to mention but a few are some of the beautiful places in Iraq that one should actually visit. I was actually surprised that they have beautiful houses and homes in Iraq with beautiful streets well lit and maintained.

There is so much beauty in Iraq other than the wars and I wish the media would show as the good side too. I hope someday to visit Iraq’s beautiful places and experience what it has to offer. It is up to me and you to show the beauty we have other than wait for people to show what think they know of us.

    It was never a place on my list, but maybe I should be more open minded.

    Wow. That’s very interesting. You make an excellent point. Iraq certainly has a bad reputation.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However just
    imagine if you added some great images or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the greatest
    in its niche. Terrific blog!
