Baghdad Blogger: How to have Fun in Baghdad (2006)

How to have Fun in Baghdad: Tired of all the death and destruction, Baghdad Blogger, Salam Pax, looks for fun things to do in Baghdad. With insurgents targeting more and more activities, are normal pastimes still possible?

"My favourite forms of escapism are pop music, television and art", Salam states. So he begins his journey looking for music shops. But since music was declared 'unislamic', virtually all shops have closed. As Iraqis no longer gather in public, only one art gallery and florist remain open. "Asking the Iraqi public to come to an exhibition is like asking them to walk through a minefield", complains the gallery owner. "People are afraid to get together." Perhaps because of this, ratings for soap operas are soaring as people look for things they can do in the relative safety of their homes.
