Arrived Baghdad ...

The core team has arrived in Baghdad where we will be joined by new team members.  Several folks have been working on making repairs to the boats to prepare them for the big event tomorrow.  We are only floating a short section of the River but we are already running into security issues.  Mostly concerning getting permissions from all the divergent security agencies that say they have jurisdiction over the area we want to cover.  We have plenty of permission letters but there are both formal and informal security groups who have a stake in the matter and its proving quite difficult to get them all on board.

I've visited the 'new' office that our organization has in Baghdad ... just part of some run-down old house ... rather disappointing.  Still nice to see the guys!
