Baghdad Nights

Some of the nights here are absolutely gorgeous. The sunsets can be magnificent, with deep purples and reds and golds streaming across the sky – I think all the smoke serves to diffuse the light.

Tonight a full moon was backlighting the clouds. It’s hard to think of how to describe it, but it looked like something you’d see on a sympathy card – so pretty that you have to stop and watch… haunting, almost…

I also noticed a new white light up on the hill. It’s rare to see a light on the hill – it’s usually the hill is blacked out (for obvious reasons). I wonder how long this new light will last?
