In Baghdad life moves online

In the endless daily battle against the fear and isolation of life under lock-down, the people of Baghdad have found a way to keep their city alive: moving it online. Instead of enjoying an outdoor meal at one of the fish restaurants along the Tigris embankment, 28-year-old housewife Dunya Saad spends her evenings at the computer in her living room, chatting with her friends on Yahoo! Messenger. Most of her relatives and friends live on the far side of the Tigris, and seeing them in person is nearly impossible. “It’s sad not to see your friends like in the good old days,” she sighed. “But online chatting has made things better.”
