i am always glad to know more about kurdistan and kurdish nation, so i am glad to read your articles and see the pics.
this time i have a question about something else - coz i keep writting blog on polish website, in polish language for people to show them kurdistan - and one of my articles is going to be about animals connected with kurdish nation and culture, like kew, kurdish wan cat or kurdish kangal dog. i would like also write about the fox (vulpes vulpes kurdistanica) and i would like to reffer to the text that you wrote in your blog - would you mind if i do that? i think its very interesting detail and i would like to share it with polish people.
my best wishes for you.
