We had the chance to see the city of Erbil. We were in a city that's been inhabited for at least 4200 years. That's hard to fathom.
Had the chance to see a Christian bookstore in action.
Drove thru the President's city of Koya and saw The Freedom Center. This is a partially finished building beside is a sight to behold.
Ended the day with "Rev. Dean" (as we call him), deciding to order a PLATE of pastries for dinner. (No kidding. And yes, he shared with the group.) I was good and ordered the humongous Greek salad first. Then I chowed on some of his pastries.
