You are braver than I. I served in the Viet Nam War but I would never go into a war zone as a civilian.
I don't believe I would have come out of that bird market alive. I'm not as tolerant and controlled as you.

Wow, that looks pretty amazing. The country as a whole I mean. I felt bad for the birds in the market though. I wanted to rescue them! As a woman I would never feel comfortable visiting there after being to Egypt and Turkey. It made me really appreciate America!

Difference between Iraq and Egypt or Turkey is about as much as between those countries and the US.
