Strangers In a Strange Land

Hosted by

Someone once said, "if you're not willing to be changed by a place, there's no point in going." This week, stories about what happens when you land in a whole new world. We hear from Colby Buzzell, reading from his war memoir, My War: Killing Time in Iraq, and Trueman Muhrer-Irwin who blogged under the name &quotRebel Coyote.&quot Also, Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss and the anonymous blogger who writes at A Day in Iraq. And pictured, some of the Sierra Leoneans a well-meaning white guy from Canada wanted to help, though they never asked for it. Mr. G., in the foreground, got a free medical operation.
