... here on the compound . . . . until I learned today (April 18) what happened in Baghdad. Due to recent activities in the IZ (international zone), clothing dropped off from 21 thru 31 March at the Embassy's laundry department was not returned from the vendor. The Embassy has tried to contact the vendor in order to have the clothing returned, but so far has not been successful , although it has not given up hope on retrieving the clothing in another week.
