A day out in Sulaymaniyah

My colleague kindly invited me to spend the day with him and his family, and showed me some of the sights in and around Sule.

We drove up the mountain to watch the sun set over the city.

Then we drove back down the mountain and went to Chavy Land, a local amusement park, complete with cable cars, rollercoasters, ferris wheel, and a fake Niagra Falls…


They have these lovely little huts around the lake where you can sit and picnic together.

The Fountain Show – lights, music, and water jets!

Spotted this on the way out – good to know the rules of the park!
