Here is the one you've all been waiting for . . . me hanging with a camel! I've seen surprisingly few camels; I don't think they like hanging out in Baghdad. In fact, our Iraqi interpreter claimed that this was only the second time he'd seen a camel in person. These guys were actually wandering around inside the point of entry from Syria to Iraq. Not exactly what you'd expect to find at an international crossing point!
