Ebola crisis breaks out during journalist's trip

Hosted by

Despite best-laid vacation plans, things don’t quite work out. We present a week-long series on travel horror stories. Today's first story comes from journalist Jim Burress, who went to Liberia a few years ago to report on mental health care. He was ready for a challenging trip, but his visit coincided with the start of the Ebola crisis.
