Check thisisrobiou's Instagram Gearing up for a 48+ hour shift at a transit site where hundreds of foreign wives of ISIS soldiers are now being held. 
When I first met them last week, I was surprised at how diverse the population was. There were women from Trinidad, France, Russia, Turkey, and Azerbaijan. Many of them nervously approached me asking about their fate. "Is it true we will be sent to Baghdad and executed en masse?," one woman asked me through her niqab. Others crowded around me eagerly awaiting my answer. In reality, no one knows what will happen to these women. Their home countries don't want them (except Chechnya which has already repatriated a few families), and the UNHCR and Iraqi government are currently playing diplomatic hot potato. The only precedent for this is Guantanamo Bay 
More on this story to come. 
P.S. my organization requires me to wear a headscarf in certain conservative areas. I didn't have one so a colleague loaned me hers :)

Check thisisrobiou's Instagram A bombed out vehicle is abandoned at the banks of the Tigris River before sunrise. 
The first time I saw this vehicle I was stuck in a traffic jam crossing the Tigris. To my left, only a couple meters from me, a federal police officer was shooting a human body that bobbed in the river. It's such a common sight that it barely warranted discussion among my colleagues.

➖

Thinking of my friends in Kenya as they cast their ballots for a new president today. Hoping the predictions of post-election violence are incorrect, and the votes around the country will sing with a representative and peaceful future. ➖

Had the privilege of speaking with Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o (perennial Nobel favorite, literary badass who wrote a book on toilet paper while in prison) about politics in his native Kenya not too long ago.

Check thisisrobiou's Instagram Today, I became an official resident of Kurdistan! It only took 7+ trips to government offices, piles of paperwork and several CDs, a blood test, and daily sacrifices to the immigration gods. Now I can add this to my ever-growing collection of superfluous IDs from hostile nations, which includes my South Sudan driver's license

Check thisisrobiou's Instagram Yesterday I traveled through West Mosul for the first time. Unlike the eastern part, West Mosul is still very much a ghost town. Buildings that haven't been totally destroyed look like Swiss cheese from all the bullets and bombed cars pepper the sides of the road. This photo has a blue-ish tint because it was taken from behind the 12 cm thick windows of an armored vehicle (which was also going 120 km/hr).

Check thisisrobiou's Instagram A reminder to look up ☝If I hadn't, I would've totally missed the gilded ceilings and elaborate chandeliers of the Village East cinemas. The Star of David hints at the movie house's history: it used to be a Yiddish art theater that hosted the likes of Chaplin, Gershwin and Einstein. 
Movie theaters to me are like churches for others; since my childhood, they have been awe-inspiring places of reverence. So nice to suspend reality and enter another world, albeit momentarily.

Check thisisrobiou's Instagram Police officers, in riot gear and armed with batons, stand guard outside the arrivals terminal at JFK airport. Hundreds of protestors, chanting "let them in", swarmed the airport after dozens of people were detained and refused entry into the country in response to Trump's order banning travelers from seven Muslim countries. Commanding Officer Brian McPherson, pictured left, politely negotiated with protestors, repeatedly saying "please" and "thank you", to clear the roads. Within an hour, the protest tripled in size.

Check thisisrobiou's Instagram In South Sudan, a survivor of a day-old sexual assault grips the headrest as my colleagues and I drive her to the nearest clinic - over 1.5 hours along incredibly bumpy dirt roads. She requested physical accompaniment to the clinic because she was afraid of being killed for speaking out - a known occurrence in her country. Rape has become yet another way to terrorize and punish civilians in South Sudan's seemingly never-ending war.
