12 Things NOT To Do in Iraq

# 12 Things NOT To Do in Iraq
By:
Iraq is a lovely place.
So know these 12 Things NOT to Do, before you go!

1. Try Not to stand out
Rather than driving fast, surrounded by bodyguards try to blend in as much as possible. Women should dress in local fashion and men should grow out their facial hair.

2. Don't Step On Bread!
Bread is a highly treasured food in Iraq. If you happen across a fallen hunk in the street don't step on it or touch it with your feet!

3. Don't Visit the Borders.
Don't travel near the Syrian, Turkish, or Iranian borders. You may encounter large refugee flows.

4. Don't Bring Bad Luck.
When Iraqis buy a new appliance they will crack an egg over it to wash away any bad luck! Iraqis are very superstitious.

5. Don't Get Jumpy!
You often may see a group of Iraqis shouting and firing rifles. But it's just a traditional way of celebrating a wedding or event. Each tribe has a different song.

6. Don't Bring Bad Luck!
If an Iraqi buys a new car, he may sacrifice a rooster for good luck. If it's a new house he may sacrifice a lamb!

7. Don't Leave the Safe Zones.
Generally speaking, southern Iraq is safer than the Sunni Triangle, and a traveler must be particularly careful in Baghdad, where there are some highly dangerous neighborhoods.

8. DON'T BRING BAD LUCK!
Don't be surprised to find an old shoe hanging in a new house! Iraqis are VERY superstitious!

9. Don't Forget Shots!
The CDC recommends travelers get Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccines as you can get these diseases through contaminated food or water in Iraq.

10. Don't Compliment Children!
Don't tell an Iraqi how well-behaved or handsome their child is. They believe this could jinx them with The Evil Eye.

11. Don't Eat Around!
In many places you may find yourself eating from a communal dish. In this case only take the portion that's directly in front of you.

12. Don't Eat with Your Left Hand!
According to the Prophet Muhammad, you should only use your right hand. The left hand is reserved for other things...

Now you can enjoy your stay in this stunningly beautiful and diverse country!

10 Things NOT To Do In Jamaica

Get more Tips here!
When you book your trip to Jamaica, the odds are good that you’re headed for a spirited, but relaxing island vacation. But there's much more to Jamaica than great music and gorgeous weather. So follow these tips to keep safe and have fun while visiting Jamaica.

1. Don’t Forget About the State Department
You should know before you travel that both s*xual as*ault and armed r*bbery are common throughout the nation, in some cases even inside gated resorts.

2. Don’t Expect Help From the Cops
The Jamaican police force is universally underpaid and understaffed. Their attention is mostly focused on more serious crime so a tourist’s stolen camera doesn’t rank high on their list of priorities.

3. Don’t Try to Get Around Without a Driver
In Jamaica, they drive on the wrong, -well, left side of the road. It can be a little perplexing, but for a small fee you can hire a driver for the day to help you get around efficiently and safely.

4. Don’t Backpack Through Jamaica
People who backpack through Jamaica essentially put a target on their back, attracting the worst of the island’s criminal element. Your best bet is to spend most of your time in highly populated areas.

5. Do Your Research
Where you spend your vacation will determine what there is to do. Love the nightlife? Then, Negril has tons of thriving hot spots. Taking your family for some fun in the sun? Montego Bay is full of family friendly resorts. Want to experience Jamaica’s inland paradise? Check out Ocho Rios.

6. Don’t Look at the Merchants
When you’re browsing at shops on the island avoid direct eye contact with the merchants. They will take it as a sign that you’re interested in buying but if you’re just looking, keep your eyes on the merchandise and not on the owner.

7. Don’t Use American Dollars
While good, old-fashioned greenbacks are welcome on the island, you should consider using the Jamaican dollar. You’ll find that you don’t have to worry about exchange rates and the locals will appreciate it.

8. Don’t Get Uptight
The entire country is filled with people who are looking on the bright side, and while they’re eager to please, they’re not in any big hurry. So, you shouldn’t be, either. No one wants to hang around with a grumpy tourist.

9. Don’t Be Afraid to Explore
There is one heck of a lot more to the island of Jamaica than just lounging on its world class beaches. There are a lot of great shopping spots and natural beauty like Dunn’s River Falls.

10. Don’t Worry About Finding a Good Beach
The best part about Jamaica is that no matter where you book your reservations Jamaica will have a pristine stretch of golden sand waiting for you. Don’t spend a ton of time trying to find “the right beach.” They’re pretty much all that beach.

10 Things NOT to Do in Israel

Get more Tips here!


There’s no shortage of amazing things to do in this quaint country. You probably have your itinerary mapped out. But if you really want to make your stay enjoyable, you can’t ignore this 10 things NOT to do when visiting this sacred country.

1. Don’t Smoke on Saturday
Israel has been constructing its anti-smoking ban, so visitors should adhere to no-smoking signs and refrain from lighting up on Shabbat. If you must smoke, do it in private and far away from an Orthodox Jew who may find your smoking habit offensive.


2. Don’t Eat Without Tipping
In Israel, the waitstaff at restaurants and cafés don’t receive a salary, so they solely rely on the tips from generous patrons. Most customers don’t leave without plopping down at least a 10% tip before heading for the exit.


3. Don’t Skip the Flea Market in Jaffa
Located in the southernmost part of Tel Aviv, the port city of Jaffa has biblical and mythological roots. The flea market opens six days a week, and vendors sell everything, from antiques to handmade items. Don't miss these picturesque streets


4. Don’t Forget Orthodox Jewish Laws
Orthodox Jews follow strict religious and social laws such as Negiah (restricting physical contact between those of the opposite sex). They will keep a healthy distance between you if you’re of the opposite gender to avoid accidental contact.


5. Don’t Shave Before Entering the Dead Sea
This Sea is loaded with mineral-rich mud and high salt content, relieving certain skin issues, from acne to eczema and psoriasis. But don't shave or wax your body for at least 2 to 3 days prior. The salt content will wreak havoc on the sensitive areas, leaving you with a burning, tingling feeling. Ouch.


6. Don’t Expect to Eat a Light Breakfast
It’s customary to enjoy a really heavy breakfast, whether you’re in a tiny café or one of the country’s many restaurants. On the menu, you’ll typically find pastries, bread, salads, eggs, meat, fruits, juice, coffee, and tea. And by the time you finish your spread, it will be time for lunch!



7. Don’t Ignore the Memorial Day Siren
If you happen to visit on April 17-18 for Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day), or on April 11-12 for Holocaust Remembrance Day, you’ll hear sirens ring throughout the country. When it stops, each person must stand up straight, and pay respect to those who’ve lost their lives. So, please, don’t ignore the sound.


8. Don’t Forget to Head Out to the Desert
The Negev – also known as the desert region of Israel – is loaded with natural wonders. Timna Park is home to acacia trees, herds of wild ibex, a souvenir shop, and overnight campgrounds. If you want to take a break, a desert excursion is just what the doctor ordered.


9. Don’t Be Afraid to Haggle
Israel is full of different bazaars and markets. In Old City of Jerusalem, prices are typically marked up, but don’t be afraid to haggle. Most sellers expect shoppers to bargain with them, especially tourists from Western countries.


10. Don’t forget to visit the Sea of Galilee
If you’re the type of tourist who loves staying active even when you’re away from home, this Middle Eastern country was made for you. The Sea of Galilee is full of attractions, including the hot pools near Tiberias, hiking trails, and swimming in the freshwater lake.

12 Most Sacred Places

12 sacred sites from around the world each one holy to their respective religion like the strange Rat Temple or Kiyomizu Shrine

Subscribe to American Eye

5. Church of the Holy Sepulchre
This is considered to be the most holiest site for christians and is constructed on the site of Jesus’ supposed tomb also in the city of Jerusalem. It was from this location where Christians believe Jesus was buried and then resurrected. The church has been a major site of pilgrimage since it was built in the fourth century. Despite being damaged by fires and earthquakes, it’s been repaired quite a few time and an extremely sacred place of worship. The pilgrims come also to see a holy relic called the stone of unction which is believed to be the spot where Jesus was prepared for burial. Inside, a shrine lays over the entrance to the cave where jesus was believed to be buried that you see in this photo..

4. Lourdes, France
Located on the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains in southwestern France, this city is home to many pilgrimages to people following the Catholic faith. In 1870, It’s here where a peasant girl by the name of Bernadette Soubirous allegedly saw the Virgin Mary at least 28 times. The Basilica Rosary is somewhat small but with impressive architecture and surprisingly does not contain the tomb of Bernadette On the 11th of February over 45,000 pilgrims visited this small city of about 15 thousand people and 6 million tourists from all over the world come here. The apparitions took place in a cave known as Massabielle and Bernadette was only 14 at the time. The Catholic Church acknowledged her visions as legitimate. The ones who do decide to make the journey here, hope to witness miracles and even be cured from illnesses or injuries.

3. Sahasralinga
This pilgrimage site is located about 10 miles from the Sirsi Taluk in the district of Uttara Kannada of the Karnataka state in India. Due to Shalmala river drying it up, it exposed thousands of these rocks carved in the language Sanskrit. Historians claim that these rocks were carved by orders of Sadashiva Raya who was the King of Sirsi during the end of the 17th century. These carvings were to honor the hindu god Shiva who is responsible of the creation, upkeep and will be responsible for the destruction of the world. The sheer quantity of the carvings is simply astounding and offer followers of the Hindu faith a place for their prayers.

2. Varanasi Along the Ganges
Considered to be the most holy site in the Hindu religion, Varanasi lies along the sacred Ganges River in India and is the spiritual capital of India. The river itself is considered to be a personified god Ganga Every morning, people wake up and wash their clothes in this river as well throw their dead relatives here as a sacred but not sanitary practice. Thousands of pilgrims each come here to attend religious ceremonies. Open cremations along banks of this river are a common occurrence that burn non stop and which is believed to grant people eternal salvation. The pollution has gotten out of control and has fecal matter content 3 times the safe level for bathing. Despite this, about 60 thousand people swim and even drink the water here each day, Hindus consider it to be a the most pure of all waters.

1.Kaaba, Mecca
15 million visitors partake in what’s known as one of the 5 pillars of Islam known as the Hajj, or sacred pilgrimage, making it by far the most holy and sacred place in the world. Islam requires each muslim to visit this city who is financially capable at least once in their life and is the largest pilgrimage in the world. This is considered to be the holiest place for muslims and The one point 6 billion followers of this religion face to the direction of Mecca Saudi, Arabia each day to pray. The population of the city can triple in size each year during the hajj. Camps are constructed to shelter the pilgrims. So what’s so special about this black cube? According to tradition it was built by the son of Abraham, Ismail built in year 2000 BC and contains a meteorite. It used to be a pagan house of worship until the prophet Muhammad arrived cleared out the icons they had been used it and made it into the house of god. The grand mosque can house hundreds of thousands of people.

10 Things NOT To Do in San Francisco!

Get more Tips here!
Today we check out some don't do's of San Fran, based on article.

Don’t pack a tropical wardrobe; the mercury hovers around 60 degrees even in summer.

Don’t park on a hill or even a slope without cramping your wheels to the curb, setting the hand brake and putting the car in parking gear. It’s the law.

Don’t stand directly behind a cable car gripman; you’ll get the wind knocked out of you when he jerks back on the brake lever.

Don’t send for an ambulance if you hear a chorus of moans, groans, grunts and wails, it’s the foghorns.

Don’t carry a milk pail to Cow Hollow; the old dairy district west of Van Ness Avenue has become a popular shopping sector.

Don’t call cable cars trolleys; they’re powered by the moving steel cable you hear humming in the slot beneath your feet.

Don’t plan to go swimming in San Francisco Bay unless you’re a member in good standing of the Polar Bear Club.

Don’t board a public conveyance without exact fare; the drivers don’t make change.

Don’t be caught without an umbrella; the coastal mists are capricious.

Don’t color the bridge over the Golden Gate gold; it’s International Orange.

It’s ’”the city by the bay” not “the city on the bay”
Above all, don’t call it “Frisco” or “San Fran.”
