Within the perimeter of our base lies the ruins of The Great Ziggurat of Ur; one of the oldest cities in the world, and one of the best preserved Ziggurats in Iraq and Iran. The chaplains here on post organize occasional tours. We got to climb up on the Ziggurat, take some pictures, and even got a professional guided tour of the ruins where it is said the biblical figure Abraham lived.
I took quite a few pictures, but the one above is my favorite.
I would write more, but to be perfectly honest, if you click on the links in the paragraph above, you can easily explore this subject much more in depth than anything I would be capable of writing.
p.s. short post ... it's been a long day. "see" you again tomorrow ;-)
Update: A few more Ziggurat pictures for Lissie ...
