Resurfacing At Last

The past year in Baghdad has really flown by and this year will probably be no different.  We were able to take a few trips out to Olathe, Rochester, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco over the past year and will do the same, albeit to different locations, this year as well.

There isn’t a lot to take pictures of in Baghdad, but last spring we had the bomb-sniffing dog handlers give a demonstration of their dogs’ abilities and then let us play with the dogs afterwards.  This was definitely one of the biggest social events on the Embassy Baghdad calendar year!  Most of the dogs were German Shepherd and Retrievers, but there were a few other breeds thrown in.

Made it to Baghdad

We’ve completed our first few days of work and are enjoying ourselves so far.  We’re among the first tranche of people to arrive this summer so a lot of the people that we’ve met will be leaving in the next couple weeks.  It’s been in the 100s since we’ve gotten here and we’re not even at the high point of the summer!  We will try to post pictures of our apartment once we get our stuff settled into its places.

We have DPO boxes which is a similar system to the APO boxes we had in Cairo.  You can write to us at:

Katie: Unit 6060 Box 1; DPO AE 09870

Miles: Unit 6060 Box 54; DPO AE 09870
