Mabrook Iraq! - #333


The actual Asian Cup Trophy.

A surprise tonight - I managed to gate crash the Iraqi national football team and the actual Asian Gulf trophy before they headed off to a party.

Why in Dubai? Well, Sheikh Maktoum invited them to Dubai so they can safely and properly have the opportunity celebrate their amazing victory in the Asian Cup!

I've really enjoyed looking at your photos of Dubai and vicinity. I can't say that I'll ever visit, but you have given me a glimpse into a country that I admit I have huge misconceptions about. I find it fascinating. Good work!

My husband was there many years ago and tells me it is a good place to visit.

Someday, when the war ends, maybe I'll be able to see it myself.
