As most of you know, when I'm in Baghdad I work at Adnan Palace, which is just down the road from the Republican Palace (now converted into the US Embassy- thansk Saddam!) Adnan is a much smaller facility, but it is, ya know, still a palace. This is a picture of the ceiling of the foyer in Adnan Palace.
