I heard the word 'haqiba' today - حَقيبة - it means 'bag'

It was during the first part of a talk by Hassan Blasim, the writer of 'The Iraqi Christ', at the Mosaic Rooms. They record talks and put them online right here.

I don't quite see why 'bag' would fit into the sentence I heard, but so what? I'm on a mission to hear the words I already know, even though they are few amidst the many I don't know. My little treasures!

I have also discovered how to type online, via this Arabic Keyboard.
