Trip to Budapest – City center

Posted on Updated on

Budapest has shed its socialist past and recaptured much of the cosmopolitan spirit that it had in the first half of the 20th century.

The city is divided into two halves by the Danube River and was formally two distinct cities, Buda on the western bank and Pest on the eastern bank. Buda is a popular residential area, while Pest is the city’s commercial core and home to many industries and businesses.

Me at center of Budapest finger to Hungary flag which is similar to Kurdistan flag.. except lack of sun 🙂 in the center of flag


Although it accounts for most of the industry in Hungary, Budapest is more than just a political, cultural and commercial hub. Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Alongside the beautiful architecture and UNESCO world heritage sites, Budapest offers residents a range of world-class shopping opportunities and some of the best nightlife in Europe.

While easily one of the most walk-able cities in Europe, Budapest also has an excellent transportation network, which makes living without a car easy and stress-free. The metro is primarily a Pest operation, with two lines covering wide north-south and east-west arcs and a third, smaller line connecting the center with the City Park . Buda is dominated by a complex tram and bus system.

Who are Peshmerga

Posted on

Peshmerga (Kurdish: پێشمەرگە Pêşmerge; literally “one who confronts death”) are the military forces of Iraqi Kurdistan. The overall formal head of the peshmerga is the President of Iraqi Kurdistan. The peshmerga force itself is largely divided and controlled separately by the Democratic Party of Kurdistan and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, although both pledge allegiance to the Kurdistan Regional Government. Efforts are under way to gather the entire force under the Ministry of Peshmerga Affairs. Peshmerga forces are responsible for defending the land, people and institutions of the Kurdistan Region.


Because the Iraqi Army is forbidden by law from entering Iraqi Kurdistan, the peshmerga, along with other Kurdish security subsidiaries, are responsible for the security of the Kurdish Region.These subsidiaries include Asayish(official intelligence agency), Parastin u Zanyarî (assisting intelligence agency) and the Zeravani (military police).

In 2003 during the Iraq War, peshmerga are said to have played a key role in the mission to capture Saddam Hussein. In 2004, Kurdish anti terror forces captured al-Qaeda key figure Hassan Ghul, who revealed the identity of Osama Bin Laden’s messenger, which eventually led to Operation Neptune Spear and the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Following an unexpected large-scale ISIS offensive against Iraqi Kurdistan in August 2014, peshmerga and other Kurdish forces from neighboring countries have been waging an all-out-war against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.

Fishing time

Posted on Updated on

As summer comes, many people from the cities and towns go out for fishing and  swimming in the nearby rivers instead of swimming pools; Rivers and Dam have become free swimming pools which are available for everyone 🙂 🙂 , but it’s not always free, it sometimes costs the lives of swimmers. 😦 😦

so was a good time of the year to make trip out with friend to mountains area mainly around Duhok dam-Kurdistan region  ..


The scene was really fascinating,,,,,surprisingly just one fish hunted by friend and no fish for me 🙂
