It’s usually this concrete-block, one-room design with a door and a window, arranged one-up, one-down, often with a shop with nothing in it on the first floor, and then a one-room apartment above it. There’s street after street after street of that stuff.  (Baghdad Quotes) A woman I loved [Andi Parhamovich] was killed in Baghdad in January 2007 ” al-Qaeda in Iraq took credit for it ¦ The memorial service with me crying over an empty coffin.  (Baghdad Quotes) When I first arrived in Baghdad in January 2003, I thought I would soon rent a house and envisioned myself swimming in the Tigris to cool off after reporting in the city the caliphs called Madinit al-Salam, the City of Peace.
