Is this a quiz?
Which one is planting the IED?

Local fuel trucks. This is the main road between Basra and Kut, in 2003 it was still pretty safe and fuel trucks didn't need an escort - not sure what it's like there now

So, not to make you more of a big-headed twat, but this is one of my favorite photos of Iraq from anyone. No death, no sorrow, no tugging of the heartstrings, just plain old interesting life.

Thanks for that.

A huge anvil-shaped cumulonimbus thunder cloud off the coast of Darwin, NT, Australia, Feb 2007.

About an hour after I took this picture, the storm rolled ashore and I witnessed one of the heaviest and loudest downpours ever, all from the safety of my backpacker's hostel roof with tinnies at hand - a regular occurence during the wet season in Australia's jungly north - brilliant it was

Wow you can really see the Central Asian style of mineret, looks very similar to Khiva and Bukara's designs in Uzbekistan.

The silk road stuff is extremly unique.
