Some things just sit right under your nose... Counting Askari Street, having been blogged by writer and historian Hala Fattah since May this year. Ok, so we got here a little bit late. Hala has left Askari Street and is heading towards you-know-where. With a busy schedule she will be co-posting on Cliopatria instead (probably worth filing under "inside info" and keeping link in blogroll, watch for Hala appearances).

Update; Iraq sport, this one posted from Johannesburg, South Africa by Maithem Al Anbari. Quoting (deadpan) Maithem; "I'm from Iraq. This blog is about sports news. For Iraqis sport is the only source of joy nowadays."
