Article - An End to Baghdad's 'Dark Era'

Nightclubs are reopening in Baghdad.

Interesting in this article is also the brief history it gives of the nightclubs - opened for most of Saddam's reign then closed in the 90s as he tried to gain favor of the religious leaders.

I am particularly excited about this bc I am going to work in Suleimaniya (up the NE, Kurdish region) next year at the two year old American University of Iraq at Suleimaniya (AUIS). I took a trip over there last week to get the lay of the land and liked what I saw. More on this to come.
