Iraq Region of Kurdistan

I returned from Iraq Kurdistan on Thursday. My ground journey began in Diyarbakir, Turkey and ended far south in Arbil, Iraq. A series of taxis were taken across the region, that was the best mode of transportation for me. I will be posting my images soon, or they can be seen at www.worldpicturenews.com If there is someone in the process of traveling in that direction, let me know and I will help out.

I took that route the first few days of the war. I was kind of surprised how much it looked like Idaho. Gorgeous country, gorgeous people. Irbil was great, spent about a month their. There was still snow on the mountains in May when we left…. Got to Bahgdad and realized we weren’t in Kansas any more…

hey walter, i am currently working in Iraq, and was wondering how safe your journey was? I mean did you have private security? I am a young photojournalist, but any answers will be great. I get time off, but the company sends me to Kuwait. Any suggestions?

if you have a good driver/fixer you do not need special security arrangements for the KRG. People are friendly and travelling is safe. I was working there for an NGO and I traveled extensively in the area. Also I went to Diyarbakir in the middle of October (by car to the Turkish border and then taxi to Diyarbakir). No problems whatsoever. I returned to KRG in the night (after midnight, taxi from Diyarbakir and spent the night in the passport control area of KRG until my driver arrived in the morning). Everything was smooth.
