Baghdad’s Al-Mutanabbi Street is perhaps the longest-lived book-selling neighborhood in the world. According to scholar Muhsin al-Musawi, the current bookshops on Al-Mutanabbi Street exist where, hundreds of years before, there was an Abbasid-era district of scribes’ markets and booksellers’ stalls. I want back to see my family and my friends there in April 2013, the first thing I did I want to this street. This is was on Friday April 11, 13. you see how crowded with thousand people's especially on Friday.

Location: Baghdad Iraq
