Next Year in Gaba

Some of you thought that Gaba was merely a state of mind.  In fact, it is also a place.  Gaba is a town in Iraq.  Specifically, it is in the As Sulaymaniyah region, just 169 miles out of Baghdad (pardon me-in local terms the distance to Baghdad is 272 kilometers).

To go to Gaba is to see what life is like in the future, for while it is 3 p.m. in Milwaukee, it is 11 p.m. in Gaba.  Even at 11 p.m. it is 30 degrees, that is, 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

If I ever travel the world, I want Gaba to be on the itinerary.
