READER COMMENT ON EYES WIDE OPEN AMERICAN
AN EXCHANGE OF EMIALS:
The water in Iraq is exellent.
Actually it one of the modern countries for me.
I am usually in a lot worse place.
The heat though is bad. But dry and clean.
There is a smog though in Baghdad.
Thanks a lot.
That's great to hear. I guess there is a lot of disinformation going
around. The Iraqi people have enough to deal with, without bad water.
Isn't the heat terrible? I have to admit that I hope I am never that
hot again! If I get to travel in that part of the world again, it will
definitely be in winter! I got back to Sydney and it was 7 degrees
centigrade - a bit of a shock to the system.
Anyway Andy, keep up the amazing lifestyle, you are incredible. It's
great to hear of Americans who have their eyes wide open to the rest of the
I can tell you that about 20-1 peoples emails and ordinary comments from
other travelers would disagree with you that I have my eyes wide open.
They call me naive on a regular basis. I wish I felt naive.
Most people will say a person is naive, or stupid if they disagree with them.
Sort of chidlike in the end. But thanks a lot
