Palace Life...

For about a week or so in late April, Larry got to live at Uday's former palace. He said it was probably pretty nice before it was bombed and looted.

Note: I put the titles Larry gave the photos in quotation marks.

"At work." No, it hasn't been a hard day's night of partying, but rather a long, hot, exhausting day of work.

MASH

"M*A*S*H*" Larry said these showers made him think of the ones on "M*A*S*H*."

Larry said from the holes in the palace, it seems five to seven missiles hit it. At least a couple of them were "bunker busters" and went down into the basement. He also said there's a big hole near his room and there are no working elevators. Apparently it's a bit dangerous to wander around certain parts of the palace, just because of the damage.
