Whole New World

Checked out a couple of exhibits, part of the Under the Crescent Moon, happening at the National Museum. Was most intrigued by the foreign, domestic lifestyles featured - from nomadic tents to "hive houses" made of soil to modern Arab architecture. Also saw a photo-exhibition featuring facets of modern Arab life - a disturbing video installation featured children play-pretending as militia, rounding up and slaying enemies.

Click here for a decent review.

Would love to explore the region if given the chance.
