The Muslim family we visited lives in this courtyard flat. The open door in the middle of the photo, taken from the balcony, is the bathroom. Just to the left is the door to the living room. Although we arrived unexpectedly, we were greeted with the gracious hospitality that is so typical of Iraqis. One of the family members went out and brought back sodas for all of us.
