Yes, it was quite a senseless attack, killing innocent doctors & nurses.

I felt quite safe too, probably safer than most big western cities. The locals were very friendly and courteous, and always ready to give you the time of day while I poked a camera in their face. I guess its the few bad eggs/extremists that spoil things I guess

Just a couple of corrections
The 99 names are not the Prophet Mohammed but for God.
The grafitti on the wall does not mention Christians.
Thank you again.
Thanks. My vague memory is to blame for the errors.

Thank you. Yes, any questions fire away.

(You should probably remove the picture of your passport though - for your privacy...)
