hi again..
am gonna be moving to "my" blog..which is: tell me a secret ...and am gonna be blogging here too..sometimes.
many people ask me: how is food in iraq?
well..i LOVE to answer that question:))
am kind of person that have no problem that cant be forgotten as soon as i see a "dolma" god...i can taste it in my mouth now...but since you cant..forget about it:)
typical iraqi/middle eastern food for lunch,,is rise plus something...and that something is usually one kind or more of vegetables cocked or mixed or done in a particuler way,and this something must contain meet or chicken peaces in it..with special spices and extras that deffers between an arabic country and another..but generally..the food is delecious..and not spicy.
in iraq..the three meals can include/be meat....breakfast can be eggs..sometimes with meat too! ,dinner can be kabab or kubba....or other stuffs.
iraqi people are good eaters..this is one of the things that we are proud of:)
the hamburger sandwich which you can get from a takeaway almost two times the size of the BigMac is big the way that usually mothers never finish it..and a reeeelly hungry IRAQI young man can be satisfyed with it...and that meal ,the sandwich+french/freedom frise (trying to satisfy all readers)+ pepsi..this meal coasts 2$ now..after the prices increased after the war.
well..there are first class restaurants in baghdad..that serves western and eastern great quality and a big amount too...kind of restaurants that you take your family to in a special event..but ..there are few restaurants which are these super restaurants...where everything is very much better than the ones i talked about..where you find only the richest will pay 10$ for a meal!'ll get a full table of free apetizers..really delesious lebanise apetizers..and that would be for free.
one thing left to say,,,iraqi people have lunch at 2pm usually..and dinner after 8pmusually..
and that would be the report of the day...thank you for listenning :)

hey all:)
am in jordan now!
i just arrived last ight for a one week vecation,inshalla.
its freezing here..really cold..with rain and a really strong wind..few days ago the radio recommended that people who weigh less than 40kgs better not go outside!
amman is the city where i spent my childhood..
today i wet to my neborhood..just passed the street where i lived without getting of the car...
i had a small warm smile on my i was remembering these days..
this street hs never been as cilent as it is now...there were more than 20 kids..boys and girls..all playing togeather all the time...thats mostly how i remember my childhood..
we all used to play the same brings a cat..and you find that cat passion starts all over the we all get so into it for couple of weeks till we get sick of it,,then we all start playing football..for the few next week tell we are boared of we collect turtles! and so on..
innocent childhood..
now everything has changed.
all the kids became men and women..most of them finished their university studies..alot of them left jordan and went to try thrir luck in europe or the building everywhere..but everything is still warm and special for me..
its the only thing i have i my life that really connects me to a place that i call home.
i have that identity you know...but i've never got the chance to go there,,i lived my childhood in jordan..and i live in iraq since 1991..but i was born in saudi arabia..and i love being there close to the kaaba..the sacered am not really sure..where is home?
the funny thing that happened that electricity blocked out..HERE! damn it..i travelled 1000km just to have that feeling that everything is normal..and that electricity will never go,,and that gas is always there in the station when you need it....this is what i wanted from this feel secured a little bit again..but here i am! man am doomed!
am gonna be telling you whats happennig with me..
ah..would you please mail mom and tell her that am fine?
thank you:)
