The bread here is excellent. It's generally pretty simple, but very fresh, nicely chewy, and a welcome change from the processed military food we get (imagine eating high school cafeteria food for each meal for a year). We love the bread but can't usually get it, unless a 'terp brings it to our base for us or when we buy a burger from the little burger stand in our base, which is run by a few of the 'terp's wives. This is a shot (again while I was the gunner in a Humvee and shot between the armored turret and the armored shield around the gun) of a local bakery. Note that these folks, like many people in Kirkuk, are happy to see us (we hope) and waving.
