Last I heard from Felipe, he safely made it to Mosul to begin his work on the ground. I imagine that his correspondence will be far less frequent from here on out.

Subject: Mosul

We got in late last night, and we are currently staying at the Air Force
base about a half an hour outside of the city center. Later today we make
the truly exciting trip from here to Camp Freedom (located at one of
Saadam’s old palaces) in Mosul.

I’m definitely not bored today.

But I’m finally here (it only took like 8 intermediate stops to get here),
and I’m safe. I’ll send more updates when I can.

Lots of love,
