"Let's Go Fly A Kite"... in Chamchamal

 This past weekend my friend, Ann, and I headed to the bazaar area of the town of Chamchamal.  She had heard that there was an ancient ruin on top of a tall hill (filled with remnants of ancient civilizations). I asked the father of this family about the age of the ruins and he said, "zor, zor, zor con/ very, very, very old". He also said it was older than the much more famous Citadel in the capital city Hawler. But the real beauty of the Friday afternoon was the Spring sunshine and wild flowers and the children flying their kite. (In case you don't know, if you click on a photo it will take you to larger versions of all the pictures.)
