it's still very close to here, maybe 30 40 50  kilometers, i don't know exactly how far it is,   but it's still quite close, and you can  actually feel it in the city, in the sense that   most people are very friendly, but still  sometimes you have the feeling that some people   look at you in like... what the hell are you  doing here, wow look at that, picture, picture yeah and when i arrived  basically i saw also a lot of...   well every day basically i see some like  military cars with uh guys in the back, arrested,   i don't know if they display them around,  or i don't know, it's a bit weird but   you can see that the situation is probably  not... still not the best around here

good good salaam alaikum i don't understand but it's safe enough  for tourism to restart slowly okay let's keep exploring the market soap shops always very nice soap shops, it's  more quiet around here... there is an army guy people look at me like what the...  no but that's for the camera now let's go to where i had a very quick lunch  in the last video, uh it was a   small market nearby, so i just want to explore this  small market, have a bit of street food there, and   i think that will be the end of this uh quick  second video here, to show you normal life... how   mosul is recovering from the dark days, the very  recent dark days of the isis occupation okay here we are at the market, at the other market,  uh but it looks it's different from the other day   let's see if we can find some street  food at least, because they had a dessert   i wanted to show you, but maybe it's gone so there there is one guy selling fruits it looks like bad luck, the other day just here   there was a small market with a guy  selling a very nice dessert, and uh   but he's gone, the market is not here anymore bad luck, look at that camera how are you, fine sorry, no arabic okay, so this guy wants to show me something let's see what he wants to show me picture, picture it looks like that's a bird market,  but there are not many birds so you can see that's all cages for  birds, but uh but they are all empty and here there are some birds, and they don't  like me, it looks like they are afraid of humans   probably rightfully okay, that's done with the... no it's okay, it's okay i think he was saying a price for a bird, i  imagine, but uh no, i don't need a bird, okay but   it's interesting, oh yeah and i remember  something i wanted to tell you, that i forgot to   tell you in this video, it's actually very funny  how the... funny, the dialect of arabic...  

i know very very very little arabic, but still i  can notice that the dialect of arabic here   in mosul is very different from what you...  from from uh from the one in baghdad, and in the   south of iraq, because just for  example to say how are you, usually they say um kifak or keifalik but here, they say chawa nak which is very closem very similar to chawani of uh...  that's what the kurdish say, it's very funny that   even just by the sentence  how are you, you can really see that uh   the language here is very  different and it's much more linked,   the arabic here is much more linked to  kurdish, than the arabic and southern iraq which channel, i don't understand what is he saying which TV channel, youtube what is this okay okay i need to... let's go to see  what this one has to show us so this is the video with the locals in mosul   so when someone tells us to go  somewhere, we just follow come on take picture of this, okay nice okay okay okay i think he wants me to film the   area so people see it on the video  on youtube, and people come to buy oh good okay, so you're filming, all right okay okay okay thank you, so you're doing this  yeah, furniture okay so they are... you're welcome   so they are uh manufacturing furniture  here, just behind the main street, very nice okay okay let's continue, let's continue the visit so i've lost my guide, he left  with a potential customer i guess camera youtube youtube, push me no, no  okay no, no okay, all right, this way i go this way no, it's okay, i am done okay let's go out okay so i escaped there, i don't know, probably  it's nothing but i didn't have a very good feeling but right in front of me there is an ice cream shop, let's  see if we can finish the video with an ice cream there is ice in the bottom okay let's have the   the ice cream which is a very industrial, and i  have some kids following me now it's melting very fast, and  it's uh well very industrial   okay so that... so that was like  eating pure chemicals, ah sorry
