Kia Ora Baghdad
No Pain No Gain; another new blog, published by an Iraqi New Zealander. Sara, posting under web-name Baghdad, left Iraq during a previous Gulf War which she calls "the" Gulf War with the heart warming human tendency we have in claiming wars according to personal impact. I guess she means the one in the early 90's, because when in living memory has there not been a war involving the Gulf? Oop, there i go doing it too, my living memory is probably not really that long. Anyway, encouraged to take up blogging by friends (and Zeyad) Baghdad contributes yet another perspective from her uniquely pacific location.
(Afterall ~ the blogosphere does not revolve around the Northern hemisphere ;)
She came all the way from Seleucia
Had a blind date with destiny
And the sound of Te Awamutu
Had a truly sacred ring...
