Visit Beautiful... Iraq?

Thursday, September 23, 2010

The images we often associate with Iraq are of destruction, war and dysfunction. But one man hopes to show people another side of the country, with a lovely tour down a Kurdistan river.  

BBC reporter Gabriel Gatehouse joins us with a story about Azzam Alwash, an Iraqi-American who hopes his eco-tourism company will attract tourists to northern Iraq.

I would like to contact Dr. Azzam Alwash, in regard to bringing tourists to the marsh area as suggested on CBC Radio Canada Oct. 12 2010. I think we have a good idea and the experience to bring it forward.
