Balad

Nothing terribly exciting here. Just some things I found appealing as I was out and about.

These are all in Balad. Parts of it are a Unesco world heritage site. It is in the old part of the city and fun to go poke around.

This photo is silly but the sign made me laugh. It is a translation error and should say “family section” not session. But I thought that either one was kind of funny posted directly over the rubbish bin.

There were benches here, which are what the sign was actually referring to. Family section means that single men can’t sit here. One of the less than useful cultural norms here that I can’t sort the purpose of.
