Ruins of a Saddam Palace

It can be an odd experience to find yourself in the vicinity, or sometimes exact spot, that a historical figure once visited. We recently headed out of Duhok on a day trip to see the great Kurdish outdoors and to see what’s left of a Saddam Hussein palace. Saddam’s palace sat on a hill, in the middle of a valley overlooking a small lake and, in its time, would have been unlike anything else in the surrounding area. However, despite the beauty I’m sure it held I obviously prefer the crumbling and Saddam-less house left behind in its place.
