In this episode, Omar Abdullah takes you to an art gallery showing in Baghdad’s Wazariyah neighborhood, which is located near the more well-known Adhamiya neighborhood, home of the Abu Hanifa Mosque.
Mayada Ali discusses the impetus behind her work and sends a message to the American people. Some of the video is a bit jumpy, and perhaps the shots of art aren’t as steady as you might desire.
Omar is just learning, so please forgive his mistakes as you would any first-time video blogger!
