This is one of Saddam's wife's three palaces in Baghdad. It was bombed all to hell, and then looted by Iraqis at the beginning of the war.

It is currently being rebuilt, so that it can be given back to the Iraqi people.

It is also the home of "Camp Prosperity". One of many camps for Coalition Forces in Baghdad, at the edge of the Green Zone.

I thought I'd be staying here for the remainder of my embed. I was sorely mistaken. This place was nice, wifi, PX, and local merchants selling stuff. I also got my first shower in 5 days here, and a decent nights sleep in a private room. The last privacy I would have for two weeks.
