Shaklawa... Finally

I had forgotten how long the trip from Lalish to Erbil is if you take the round-about road via Akre. Well, we stopped in Akre only to use the facillities and continued on our way down an impossibly small and bumpy, but paved road winding its way around the mountians. After about 3 hours, we reached Shaklawa.... finally! We didn't do much there other than watch Kurdsat News and have a late lunch. After lunch we went to buy honey and walnuts. The pictures below are of some locals we met on the way back to the vehicle.

We made friends with these gentlement while trying to photograph the birds flying to the nests perched in every nestable spot overhead.
