Hope you do not mind; it was straight racism with no other content.

How much does one need to like turmeric to get along there?

Not a lover of sand based holidays - rather more into culture combined with warmer climes. Sunshine always good but did you get to temperatures of a (IMHO modest) 25C or above? Doubtful. As for "uneatable" did you mean "inedible"?

A small group of friends drove up to the Kurdish region in the North, with overnight stays in the small hotels attached to railway stations en route. The scenery was magnificent, the people friendly and there were no other tourists! We visited Erbil, Mosul and Sulimaniyah. Happy memories!

Trouble is, too many think a holiday must be spent irradiating the body preferably while lying on a bed of sand, no matter that white skin can be badly damaged by it, and sand makes sandwiches uneatable.

I did work for the BBC once-upon-a-time, DD, never got the chance to do such exciting things though.

We do get to look at the pictures though...

DoctorDolots"talk about having visited in Hamsptead dinner parties."and remark that 'it's not spoiled yet, but you can see the signs....' Thu 23 Sep 2010 12:42:58 GMT+1 DoctorDolots http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/09/holiday_2011.shtml?page=17#comment3 We should all be planning to holiday in the UK. It not only reduces out carbon footprint, but also supports British business, and keep money in the country. What's attractive about sand dunes and a river with barely any vegetation or wildlife? But no surprise a journo luvvy thinks Kurdistan is a groovy place to talk about having visited in Hamsptead dinner parties.

However, there are places in Iraq that would attract me ...
