The palaces Saddam Hussein
built in central Baghdad were elaborate, and we occupy them now in an area called the Green Zone.Now they are administrative offices of various sorts. And of course they are on the water, as the Euphrates
winds through the area.We received this shot from a Major in the Army stationed
there.The wars of man rage on, but there is more than that - life just moving
along, as with these ducks.
The Major says: "The ducks that hang out in the pond that surrounds the palace. They come
to the guards twice a day like clockwork to be fed bread."
