We have a good PX on Camp Striker, but there is a bigger PX over on Camp Liberty. Unfortunately, it's an hour bus ride. I had the extra time today because I couldn't work out like I normally do. You see, there was NO WATER. Have you ever tried to run a hospital without water? I'm guessing no. Well, the water is back on now, so I'm headed to the gym to try and create some muscles to impress random Macedonian chicks.
Please enjoy these pics I took while riding on the bus.
Picture 1. Since this is a desert, these lakes aren't natural. We are pretty sure Saddam had them put in. I guess there were a few perks being supreme ruler after all. "Hey Achmed. Put a lake over there."
Picture 2. Small palaces surround the lake. They were probably for favored family and friends.
Picture 3. More of the same.
Picture 4. The big palace. One of them, at least.
Tomorrow: The Zoo.
