Today we drove through the countryside from Najaf to Uruk. The road was not so bad, and many parts were newly paved. There were also fewer checkpoints than usual, so we drove a bit faster than expected. After the visit to Uruk, we stopped at a little village on the banks of the Eufrat River. At night, a local friendly teacher Ibrahim invited us for a cup of tea at the „multipurpose hall, “ where we spent an hour chatting with him and other guys.
