Contemporary Buses in Baghdad

Before 1991 there were buses in Baghdad that got numbers. They got fixed hours and destinations. Nowadays, we don't have buses, we got minibuses. We got minibuses with no numbers nor fixed anything. The minibuses have no mark nor name. You must ask the driver with a loud voice: "Where to?" and he will answer you with a shout the destination he is heading to.  

Yesterday the mini-bus was empty and the driver was standing far shouting the name of the quarter. The wind was cold and dry.
