We were on tour in Syria when we stopped briefly to take a picture of a sign saying "this way to Bagdad." Suddenly, this dude drove by at about 80 mph. He actually had to swerve a bit to the middle of the highway, which caused several of us to feel an intense constriction of the sphincter. These supply trucks are common, and their usual destination is, in fact, Iraq.
