Here's the dome in the center of the Al Faw Palace. Mighty impressive. Just don't look too closely at the structure underneath the marble cladding!
One of the popular attractions in the Palace is this chair. It was given to Saddam Hussein by his good friend Yasser Arafat. Since 2003, it has hosted the butts of thousands of American soldiers and civilians. Add mine to that list.
Yes, I'm sitting around again. This is our work area. Rather stylish, don't you think? We work in what was once a museum ... I don't know what for ... and we've crammed it full of cheap pressed-wood desks that passed their "sell-by" date a couple of decades ago. Still, it works.
