Back at Ashraf

The drive from Balad back to Ashraf went safely. It was a lot hotter in the afternoon than when we left in the morning, but the trip itself wasn't all that long so that helped.

I should add that the roads between Ashraf and Balad, particularly on the western side of the Tigris, are horrendous. They're repaving some of that stretch, but the potholes and IED craters are simply enormous. It's pretty difficult to drive with any amount of speed knowing that these monstrous holes lurk everywhere! However, it was good driving experience, and good convoy experience in general.
