In pictures .. Baghdad in a scene different from what is reported by the media
 
 
In a completely different scene from the images the world media used to relocate from a city once described as a city of violence and chaos, and nearly two years after Iraq declared total victory over ISIS, Baghdad is quietly reshaping Dar es Salaam.
 
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Members of rival motorcyclists in Iraq , dressed in leather and black hats, take part in semi-circles with a dancing party waving bright shiny sticks as they raise their arms covered with tattoos.

The Mughal Motorcycle Club Circle was one of many circles with a summer festival by Rayut Gear (a concert - a car show) held at a sports stadium in central Baghdad .

Arshad Hibet, 30, a film director and founder of Riot Gear, which organizes the concerts, says: "Young people are mostly the public. People know their culture. "People have confidence, it means winning people's trust."

RIOT GEAR has previously held similar concerts in Iraq before, but Friday's concert was the first open to the public.

The ceremony began with a demonstration of young cars and modified imported motorcycles, and by night the event turned into a dance music.

Interesting...if this is Iraq, and I am not sure it is, I like the T-shirt that the one in the center is wearing. The Stars and Stripes with an eagle on it! I say I am not sure because one of the pics you can see the Jordanian flag 🇯🇴 In the background by the stadium. 

 

Thanks for for bringing the article @DWS112. Even if half of it is as reported, I take this as showing one thing...stability in everyday life for them. Now, give them purchasing power!
