1/ Normally I pass quickly through #KurdistanIraq on way to North Syria. But this time I decided to take time to drive around &explore this beautiful region.

Let me show you some nice places I visited today. I hope you enjoy this.

On the road to town of Barzan. 👇

@akhbar 2/ This is a rural area which depends on farming and agriculture.

Roughly 100 kms north or Erbil, cows walk along the Great Zab river which has high water levels due to the melting snow on mountains.

@akhbar 3/ Further north, the Shanidar cave is located. It is a pretty steep climb with a temperature of 36 degrees during the day.

But it was really nice to eventually reach the cave. Very cool inside.

4/ While driving from Barzan to Akre, there is a stunning mountain pass with a river going right through it.

It is so beautiful to see.

5/ I wanted to share these pics with you because there are so many beautiful things in this region.

Its sadly eclipsed by the bad news. That is understandable but sometimes unfair.

6/ I always feel that it is my responsibility and that of journalists who are actually from the Middle East to also show the beauty and variety of our region.

I hope you get to visit once to experience it for yourself.
