I was told that you need a permit and authorisation to visit but you know me. Always worth a go! and it was a public holiday here so I expected security to be relaxed!!
Trying to find the camp wasn’t easy but once I got near, there was a constant stream of men women and children all walking and a sure sign I was getting close. It’s about 14 kms outside the city at the end of a big industrial estate.
I was pleasantly surprised to find on arrival I could park opposite the gate and walk straight in. I didn’t bother going to the smoked glass security hut in case they said No, but didn’t see any security the whole few hours I was there.
I met Iranians, Iraqis Kurdish (North Iraq) Afghans, Pakistanis and Somalians. All were very friendly and welcoming and nearly all were happy to pose for photographs
