Sneaking Into Iraq, Ten Years Ago

Yunghi Kim has a story up on National Geographic’s site about her efforts to get into Iraq at the start of the war a decade ago.

I hesitated before posting this because a casual read may encourage others to try what she did, to cause others to believe this wasn’t as difficult or harrowing as it probably was. With a decade’s worth of memories between the experience and the writing, there are sure to be details that have been left out.
