Part Five Coming Soon

I'm still working on Back to Iraq Part Five. This installment is going to be a long one. I'm trying to get all the rest of my Iraq material (gathered in a mere couple of hours) into this entry.

In Part Six I'll describe what happened while trying to get out of Iraq. I should have known that wouldn't be as easy as getting in. But it was waaaaay more of an adventure (in the bad sense of the word) than I possibly could have predicted. It will be a lot more fun to write about than it was to experience...

Just curious, what were your actual travel dates?

Ismay,

That is a question that should not be asked. Michael needs the ambiguity for his safety. The Peshmerga are not the only ones who watch the borders. While it might seem a stretch to infer that somebody with a camera attached to a storage server has the capacity to hit Michael, it is just silly to give such people search parameters for free. We know that some real schmucks have been reading this site and making threats.

I want Michael to make more trips to moderately dangerous places; it's fun to hear about them over beer back home. (Even though he makes my trip to Korea look tame by comparison.) If he gets rolled up and hassled crossing the border into Armenia or Turkmenistan because he revealed unnecessary details about other trips, he'll stop making trips and writing about them.
