قم برحلة إلى جنوب العراق ، من بغداد إلى البصرة في أفضل عشرة أماكن للزيارة في العراق وأشياء يمكنك القيام بها بالفيديو! لقد وجدت بغداد والجنوب آمنين للغاية ، وكان هناك العديد من الأماكن الرائعة التي يمكن رؤيتها.

بدءاً من بغداد العاصمة: ميدان التحرير ، نصب الحرية ، سوق الشورجة ، متحف ونصب الشهيد الشهيد ، الكاظمية ، بيت الحكمة ، قطسيفون ونصب أنقذوا الثقافة العراقية.

بابل: منذ بدايتها كأهم مدينة في بلاد ما بين النهرين في عهد الملك نبوخذ نصر من خلال إعادة بنائها من قبل صدام حسين إلى سقوطها بعد الغزو عندما أقامت القوات الأمريكية والبولندية معسكرات للجيش وهددت داعش وجودها ، شهدت بابل إمبراطوريات تأتي وتذهب.
أثناء تواجدك في بابل ، قم بزيارة قصر صدام حسين

الزقورة الكبرى في أور: الزقورة هي نسخة هرم بلاد ما بين النهرين ، لكنها مسطحة من أعلى.

كربلاء: زار أكثر من 30 مليون شخص مقابر الإمام علي وشقيقه عباس أثناء حج الأربعين.

البصرة: البيوت المشبكية الخشبية في منطقة الشناشيل وركوب قارب على نهر شط العرب ورحلة الى متحف البصرة.

سامراء: الجامع الكبير في سامراء هو واحد من أكثر المساجد تفردًا في العالم. الجامع العسكري فيه ضريح الإمام علي الهادي ونجله حسن العسكرى

الطعام: مقلوبي ، شاورما ، فلافل ، كنافة

النجف: يقع مسجد الإمام علي في مبنى ضخم مع عرض لامع من الذهب والمرايا والفسيفساء الجميلة. بالقرب من وادي السلام ، أكبر مقبرة في العالم.

أنهار ميزوبوتاميان: منظر مائي نادر في الصحراء ، موطن لعرب الأهوار ، الذين عاشوا في منازل القصب في المنطقة لأكثر من 5000 عام.

الشعب العراقي: أكثر الناس كرمًا في العالم. لم أشعر أبدًا بالترحيب في حياتي. وبالنظر إلى حروب العراق مع أمريكا على وجه الخصوص ، فقد فوجئت بمدى اهتمام الناس وسعدائهم بمقابلتي. سأعود بالتأكيد لأنني شعرت بالكثير من الحب.

إلى كل العراقيين الرائعين الذين قابلتهم ، شكران وإن شاء الله ، سنلتقي مرة أخرى يومًا ما. في صحتك ، فيل

TRANSCRIPT
I’m Sal Lavallo. I’ve been to every country in the world. And, today I’m gonna tell you about some of my favourite countries in the Middle East and my favourite experiences in each of them.

BAHRAIN
It was one of the first places that the British came and they already had this big fort there. It also has a lot of culture and a really great National Museum, I thinks one of the better museums in the Middle East. Not only does it have a big history part but it has a really nice contemporary art like centre. I also had you know fun time driving into the desert, have you heard of the tree of life or so the tree of life in Bahrain you drive desert desert desert and suddenly there is this huge green tree that people think is this anomaly. I think Bahrain in a lot of ways is an anomaly.

EGYPT
I one night ate pigeon and it’s actually pretty good. I was you know we ordered it, it’s somewhat common and it’s not, it’s fine, it’s like a small little bird it’s hard to get the meat off but you have to eat it with your hands. I kind of go through the bones, I wouldn’t recommend it. You know on a first date because you’re a little bit you know using your hands but it’s that was interesting that was a first for me. What I remember the most was that the pyramids are first time you see them are amazing and then you drive by them every day and it’s funny that something so incredible can become so normalized. I went to Luxor to see all of the temples there and it’s just you know they say that the pyramids were older to Cleopatra then Cleopatra is to the iPhone. That’s unbelievable right, to think that there’s that much history.

IRAQ
I spent my time in Iraqi Kurdistan and I think I was a little bit nervous to go there. I think a lot of places we get nervous since all in our heads and the second that I landed you know we were walking down the streets seeing everybody living their normal day lives, we got really really comfortable and it’s such a beautiful place. We ate a lot of kababs, we also ate a lot of fresh honey, we had to drank too much sugary tea, I think we are always like kind of had the sugar shakes, oh and the have like a big like bazaar and herbal that’s similar to like the Turkish Grand Bazaar and you can get all you know Turkish delight and tons of dried figs and dried nuts there. That’s really it’s kind of like a culinary heaven there in a way.

JORDAN
We went to Petra another really intense historical site that just kind of comes out of nowhere in the middle of the desert and then when we were leaving it started snowing and we got caught in a snowstorm which you again wouldn’t you know even I who had lived here for many years I sometimes, oh Middle East must be hot and you know we’re like deserts must be hot and that’s not true. It was so cold, snow everywhere.

KUWAIT
I thought it was such a pleasant city, I mean like palm trees and we went in like may be April so it was like perfect time weather-wise and all of our business meetings were really successful and everybody was really nice, so it was like a perfect experience.
