    ... Iraqi. They are beautiful pieces including an old Omega watch set in a glass globe. Only $100. A snip. However much I like his collection I make no purchases. I am tempted by the old compasses whoch are beautiful pieces of work but I resist.

    I return to my perch and chat again to my host who arranges for me to go with his son who will cook a traditional meal this evening. Hopefully a change from kebabs and chicken. I ...
