the country of iraq is roughly the size of california and consists of mostly desert. two major rivers cut through the center of iraq, the euphrates and the tigris. the area between the rivers is the main agricultural area of the country due to the fertility of the soil. northern iraq is mountainous, with the land leveling out as it heads towards the persian gulf.
mild winters and dry summers mean that the climate is typical of a desert, with most of the precipitation occurring in the mountain areas. the country of iraq only has a little bit of land touching the persian gulf near the city of umm qasr, making that area quite significant for shipping and transportation.
iraqi culture is rich in tradition and history. traditional national dishes consist of lamb, beef, fish and poultry prepared with chickpeas, lentils and a variety of vegetables such as potatoes, eggplant and okra. masgouf is a popular food and consists of crispy grilled fish brushed with oil and spices. dolma is another popular dish and is essentially seasoned vegetables rolled in grape leaves and baked. iraqi traditional music used instruments not common in western culture, such as the rebab, a type of stringed instrument.
