Basra – Food (Part 1)

This is only a part of the delicious plates I have seen and tasted these days. Not all of them actually, most of them are my colleagues meals. So far I have liked everything but the lamb, because I never eat lamb meat.

Here it’s full of Lebanese so go figure if they are serving us something typical or a contamination of cultures… but I like that 😋😍

Our hotel is still under construction, we work a lot and we gather for the meals. These atmosphere is respectful and joyful.

I feel like at home and I cant explain why. Everything is different and yet still wonderfully familiar.

Enjoy the culinary tour.

    1. Nope, not yet. It’s just me, the workers and a few employees. Today there has been a lovely warm and strong wind blowing. It reminded me of Rome or Palermo in their best days of hot summer. If only I could have a summer which lasts one year! 💪🤣
