【エルビル クルディスタン 移動 バス】

 

 

小さい町に行ってたのでネットゲットできず更新遅れですー(SIMカード買えやって言う話だが)。

 

 

I couldn’t upload blog coz I was in small town. Oh don’t say “Should but SIM”🤣

 

 

So I checked where I can move in Kurdistan. If I got out from no visa area just in case, I would be arrested. 

 

 

I found a place Sulaymaniyah which is closed to Iran. My friend told me that there is bus from international bus terminal.

 

 

 

Since I saw an info which says if you wanna go Sulaymaniyah, transportation is only Taxi 🚖 , I went to the bus terminal to confirm what there is exactly ticket.

 

 

バス乗り場、タクシー乗り場

・International bus terminal →36.205629, 44.047795

・Taxi for Sulaymaniyah →36.157419, 44.012619

Walking 🚶‍♀️ 

 

 

Bus terminal is little bit far away from center. If you use taxi, it cost 5000IQD😭 however I walked lol

 

 

Bus terminal has many companies which go to Iran or Turkey.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190420215532j:image

For Turkey . Cheap!! Unless no kidnapping and Terrorist.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190420215554j:image

Iran Visa!! I thought I could get but it was for only Iraq citizens.人生そんなに甘くない。

 

 

To be surprised, it was true info which my friend said!! 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190420215620j:image

this company.

 

 

But the bus departs only  1:00pm. To Sulaymaniyah spend 2-3h. If you go there by bus, you will stay there or using taxi when you comeback same day.

 

 

Price is 15000IQD. I think its expensive... btw share taxi is 20000-25000IQD.

 

 

I see... but I don’t wanna do hitchhike in Iraq at this moment... so this wage made me wonder.

Lunch sandwich 🥪 

 

 

 

Shopkeepers reccomended to put yellow sauce but taste was LEGO blocks. Nice Chemical smell 🙌

 

 

この黄色いネバネバしたやつが美味いんだ!的な感じでぶっかけられたけど、レゴの味がしてただただネバネバしてた。

 

 

Go back to down.

f:id:orihato:20190418054626j:image

 

It is first time to come here Iraq 🇮🇶. Actually I’m in Erbil, Kurdistan.

 

 

イラク来た!って言いたいがために来たイラク。実際はエルビルっていうゴリゴリの安全エリアでここに来てる日本人は意外と多いけどw

 

 

However airport is looks like close to center on map, the distance is 6km.

 

 

then I immediately thought, I can walk.

 

 

Longer traveling time, longer distance what I can walk. Normally I walk about 15km par day. 

 

 

The range to be able to walk is radius 5km. Somehow I like to walk. Even when I was in Japan, I got used to walking too much. 

 

 

 

Btw there is taxi, not bus!!, from airport to Downtown. But it cost 20$!!!

 

 

Which poor backpacker pay ??? Omg... If I  have 20$, I can spend 1week in Mexico...

 

 

So I walked.

f:id:orihato:20190418054626j:image

Lol

 

 

Baghdad,Kirkuk and Mosul all of them are prohibited to go for Foreigners now except special workers as government, army, etc...

 

 

But I was glad to see Baghdad in this sign bord. Coz I really felt that I came Iraq. And this word “Baghdad” was showed only TV, newspaper and internet until now, finally I could see by eyes 👀!!!

 

 

Hahaha!! I’m in Iraqqqqqqq🤩🇮🇶🤩🇮🇶🤩🇮🇶

 

 

I’m excited.

Once I passed downtown and went to shopping mall coz I had to connect internet to send message what I already arrived erbil for host and meet up friends.

beau mosque 🕌 

 

 

Kurdish people are also friendly. They can’t help to saying hello when they see foreigners lol

 

 

Several people were gazing me at first but when I said hello or salam , they gave me smiles. Such a friendly people!!!

 

 

When I got WiFi, a friend just called me. Then we went to his English lesson in university.

 

 

His name is Khattab, actually I don’t know how pronounced lol. He is working and learning English. And his class is for adults.

Teacher seems to be from Iraq.

 

 

But he doesn’t speak Kurdish or Arabic except special case. When students ask, they speak their language however Answer is English.

 

 

This course is learning grammar. I also study English.

 

 

Teacher was so strict lol. When student missed  just one spelling, he said “ you don’t know how to spell??  OMG, very bad” or “ if you can’t answer, I’ll kick you out from this room”...😱😱😱

 

 

Most important to study is to make spontaneous. I believe that teacher has to urge their mind... 

 

 

But my logical is for kids hehehe.

 

 

Anyway it was quite nice time(゚∀゚)

 

 

文法は母語でやる方が良い説を信じるタイプですが、久しぶりの本格的な英語勉強は中々応えましたwww文法苦手なので良い勉強になりました。

 

 

Especially the lesson tell us not only English grammar, but also habit of other countries culture or morality. 

 

 

Its sounds good. All students attentively listened to what teacher told. 

 

 

少しずつ、こういうことを大人になっても知ることは大事だと思うしそれを伝えることも大事だなぁと。素晴らしい授業に参加出来た。

 

 

Erbil is revolutionizing 💪

 

 

YOLO!!

I’m not terrorist🤣

After cameback Madaba to downtown,  I headed to Bus terminal around 9pm. I saw an info about airport bus. They say bus is working every hour until 0:00am. So I didn’t worry what I would upset.

 

 

Bus terminal has ticket counter. They sell a ticket 3.3JD. 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190417061528j:image

 

 

3.3JDは絶妙な値段設定だなぁwww空港まで約1時間、まぁ安いなかもしれんがマダバが1JDだからなwww良い感じで足元見られてるね。

 

 

My flight is 3:30am. So I have to wait a long time...

 

 

what?? where am I going?? 

 

 

 

GUESS!!

 

 

 

It’s easy to find answer. That’s why I don’t put in this time lol

 

 

At first I cameback Ankara,Turkey. While I didn’t know whether I was sleeping or not, I already arrived. It spent 1h. 

 

 

一旦出国手続きをして再びチェックイン。

 

 

Once I entered Turkey and I rechecked.

 

 

At the moment problem happened.

 

 

When I checked in at counter,works saw my destination with dubious face.

 

 

 

“Are you sure(΄◉◞౪◟◉`)?” They said.

 

 

 

“What’s the matter?(smile)”

 

 

 

 

......(staring my passport and flight ticket)

 

 

 

 

“Go Police”

 

 

 

 

 

!!!!

 

 

 

Really!!!??? Should I go there!!??😂😂

 

 

One guy said to follow him and took me police office.

 

f:id:orihato:20190417064411j:image

 

 


f:id:orihato:20190417064415j:image

what will happen ...

 

Then 6~8police surrounded me and checked passport.

 

 

One of looks like boss asked.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“WHY YOU GO TO IRAQ 🇮🇶 ??”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

次の目的地は、の答えはイラクでした〜。世界者には日産GTRをお届けします。

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer what I said “guess” is Iraq as my next destination.

 

 

Actually I’ll go Erbil, Kurdistan. Only This region is to be able to go without Visa. 

 

 

And Kurdistan is like being Taiwan. They try to indepndent. And Erbil is capital of Kurdistan in Iraq.

 

f:id:orihato:20190417063652j:image

This region

 

 

イラクに行った!っていうことが言いたいがためにええ、選びました。実際はイラクっつーかクルディスタンで治安も良い場所なのはみんなご存知だとは思うがwww

 

 

Well, I replied why I wanna go there. Add they asked to show my pictures of phone. I said “why you wanna see pictures?”

 

 

 

They said “ I’m sorry but we are not sure what you will be terrorist or IS members, etc...”

 

 

 

ワロタ。

 

 

 

I was doubted what I’ll be terrorist😂😂😂😂😂😂

 

 

Ooookkk!! You guys can check everything whatever you want!!!

 

 

I was laughing and laughing.

 

 

After all the doubt was gone and they released me.

 

 

世界で初めてテロリストになるんじゃないかという疑惑を持たれた保育士であることは間違いないだろう。

 

 

The flight was Ankara to Gaziantep. Gaziantep was said that there is possibility to being real terrorist. Also Japanese government announces not to go there.

 

 

So I didn’t go out from airport however it was quite long transit time. Fortunately I could get WiFi there lol

 

 

Departed Gaziantep was 3:00am. I immediately  slept in airplane coz I hadn’t slept too much.

 

 

Finally I arrived Erbil airport at 5:00am. I’ll enjoy in Erbil!! Also I absolutely avoid dangerous things as much as possible 😂

 

 

YOLO!!

Oh Moses

Last day in Jordan, I went to Nebo mountain. This place was called that Moses died as he saw Promised Land.

踝を狙うサソリに激怒したモーゼが近くにあった墓標で神の力を借りて全力で叩きのめそうとしてる瞬間。

 

 

【Explain this (↑)picture 】

•The moment that Moses, who is angry with a scorpion🦂 aiming at his ankle, is trying to beat it with all his power by using God power at a nearby tombstone.

 

 

I and Vin went to Madaba at first. It cost 1JD. Then we headed to Nebo.

 

 

As it was normal day, visiters were not too much except Italian. I don’t have idea why there are many Italians haha. Vin was talking with them. Really Italian and spanish are similar... I would like to study Italian,,, maybe,,,

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190416062244j:image

 


f:id:orihato:20190416062248j:image

2JD. お財布に優しいお値段。

 

 

Entrance fee is good that everyone can convince. Hey Petra.... you let me recall awful price 😩

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190416062648j:image

 

 

This monument was written “God is love” by Greece, Latin and Arabic.

Unless there were no smogs 🙄

 

 

ネボ山の展望スポットからは、死海エルサレムジェリコベツレヘムなど、まさに聖書の舞台となったその場所を見渡すことができます。方向を表す図があるので、目で追ってみましょう。日本人から見ると、緑豊かな…というわけにはいきませんが、穏やかな、のんびりと羊が歩いていそうな風景で、砂漠を延々と歩いてきたモーセたちには、天国のように映ったに違いありません。

上の貼り付けた文章、的を得てて気に入った。俺らからしたらへー、中々綺麗な景色だなー、だけど確かにモーゼさん達からしたらウッホww一望できるやんけ、神さんがお話しになさったとこwwwって感じなんだろうな。

 

 

There is also museum.

 

f:id:orihato:20190416063701j:image

 


f:id:orihato:20190416063706j:image

 

 

Anyway Moses was died when he was 120 years old. 

 

 

Super healthy body✨✨

 

 

We returned Madaba. Then I happened to see a girl whom I met in a bus when I cameback home.

 

 

She guided us for a little time. She is student and she can speak Arabic, English and German. Such an intelligent girl!!! I hope she will be successful her life.

 

f:id:orihato:20190416063953j:image

変なメガネしてるけど取ったらめっちゃくちゃ可愛い。アラビアン橋本環奈に見えたよ。

 

 

しっかりワッツアップは交換しました。

 

 

One encounter changes life. We must cherish a meeting once.

 

 

Although I wrote such a good sentence, absolutely there is wrong desire lol

 

 

カッコつけて一度の出会いを大切に、とか書いたけど邪な欲が付いていることは言うまでも無い。

 

 

YOLO!!

I backed Amman and I rested for 2days. Actually one day I went to Fancy (?) or modern area.

 

 

Btw Suddenly Italianana sent message again!! It was surprised coz I already finished everything.

 

 

So we went to take a walk in Amman. 

 

 

May first I picked her up in hostel. She has stayed hostel agian. 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190415040435j:image

なんつー暴力的な張り紙なことでしょうwww

 

 

What a announce lol

 

So I was waiting downstairs of this hostel. I guess many crazy local people come and talk with guests... then local say “we are friend. No problem” I mean they pretend to be friend...

 

 

 

10min later she appeared and we started to walk. 

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190415040659j:image

 

 

This street was looks like Mexican small town road. Atmosphere or people are calm down and relaxed. It was little surprised about Amman of  tumult has such a this place.

f:id:orihato:20190415041351j:image

心地よい春の風がサワサワーと抜けていきます。カフェは高いです。

 

 

 

Vin will go to Israel to do volunteer. However I wanted to go there together, I gave up as I’ve already written. 

 

 

Coz I AM CHICKEN 🐓

 

 

イスラエル一緒に行きたかったけどワタクシ、チキン野郎なのでヤメマシタ。

 

 

Then we cameback downtown. Before I headed to my home, she gave me SIM card. This item is  pretty excellent present for me!!! I threw  my fucking weak Liberia sim to garbage box. See you👏👏

 

 

Next day was just chilling in home. Since I could connect internet, totally I enjoyed internet life for a lond timeイェ━━━━━ヽ( ゚Д゚)人(゚Д゚ )ノ━━━━━━ィ!!

Petra is going to open 6:00am. Then I arrived 7:30am. Still there were not too much people. At first I bought crazy expensive entrance fee(50JD!!) and took a map.

 

【explain Petra 】

 

ペトラ遺跡https://ja.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/

 

Petra→https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petra

 

 

It remained unknown to the world until it was rediscovered in 1812 by Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.

 

 

So Petra has a lots mysterious things. 

 

 

説明がめんどくさいので書くの諦めた笑

 

 

ざっくり言うとインディージョーンズの舞台になったところ。もう少し細かく言うと大昔の貿易の街として栄えてだけど色々あって衰退した街とのこと。

 

 

そしてベドウィンとかいうモロッコベルベル人的な昔っからここに住んでる人達が商いをしてる。そのベドウィンっつーのがなんか魅力的で惹かれちゃう人が多いとか。

 

 

木村とかいう話を聞くだに幸薄そうな日本人が虜になって貢いでいたらしいwwwトーリービーアーwww

After seeing, I walked for such s trekking course.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190414072029j:image

 

 

This course was little bit hard. Stairs were so steep and big. As I’m lazy traveler, it made me exhausted quickly (΄◉◞౪◟◉`)gasp, gasp....

 

 

But the view from top is nice!!

 


f:id:orihato:20190414072025j:image

良いね!結構感動する!

 

 

Although I was seeing a lots landscape, I always got big impression:) I have quite big curiosity 👍

It’s super good exercise!! I saw a lots elder people also could complete to come top. So everyone can do it!!

 

 

When I cameback, I saw too much people walked in the way around 2:00pm... Clearly coming in morning is better:)

 

 

After I exited Petra, I asked that bus still exists or not. People say local bus was done ( I thought it’s a lie 🙄). Anyway I tried Hitchhike again.

 

 

then 2 guys took me and they were so excited. While driving, we were living on Facebook lol

 

 

Many their friend commented me!! It was very fun time!!

 

f:id:orihato:20190414073744j:image

プーカプーカ

 

 

I completely knew where is free beach. I departed home at 9:30(←lazy 🤣).

 

 

Let’s go Dead Sea again!!

 

 

 

 

The way is as well as I did once. So it was easy to go Rama.

 

 

I caught a big track 🚚 at first in Rama. Somehow he was laughing too much while we were running although his son was gazing toward and no move at all. What a contrast.

 

 

トラックの運ちゃんがよく分からないけど終始「ヒーッヒッヒッヒwwww」って楽しそうに笑ってて何よりだった。隣に座ってた息子は顔に針金でもあんのかってくらいスッと前を向いて固まってたけど。何、このコントラストは。

 

 

Suddenly this track turned out the way and entered construction site 🚜🚧

 

 

(゚∀゚)!!

 

 

 

What happen!!

 

 

Driver told me what we were going to do. It seemed to put water in big tanks.

 

f:id:orihato:20190413152505j:image

Good job boy.

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190413152544j:image

wattteeerrrr!!!!

 

 

Since boy sometimes couldn’t control this tube coz he didn’t have power, water came into my seat through window like elephant plays water by their nose. Ok no problem I just wanted to get water. 

 

 

My body already got too wet before I entered Dead Sea lol

 

 

 

Track took me beside road again. Thanks!!

 

 

Then two cars helped me. Thanks !!

 

 

f:id:orihato:20190413152613j:image

I understood why this lake is called Dead Sea...
