One of my favorite things in Baghdad is the numerous date palms that dot the landscape. Almost anywhere you look, you see these majestic trees in the distance.
This weekend, while driving under a palm tree, I noticed that the dates are starting to come in. It's an awesome sight, subhanaAllah. Here are some pics.
For those who don't know: dates are used in alot of different ways here, from date vinegar for cooking/salads, to date syrup (dibis) as a breakfast item.
