Friday Afternoon Walks…

A few rare Friday afternoons when we weren’t working, we went out to explore the local area…

Off on a walk down to the river…

Stone skimming contest, obviously.

Cracked dry mud – all crunchy under your feet!



This bit looked like huge slabs of chocolate!


Guess who had to crawl over the log bridge – terribly bad balance, I just knew I’d fall in otherwise!


Off to the local castle/museum…

This castle is oddly small when you see it up close – somehow slightly out of proportion!

Hanging with some Kurdish ladies and admiring all their bling…

This group of peeps just happened to be posing for a photo when I walked by. They looked exactly like a publicity shot for a new Channel 4 reality tv show – like “The only way is Kurdish” or something similar..
