US media visa

Something I'm very proud of, my US media visa that I got last week.

Hard won: a few hundred bucks, return flights to Akld, online form that took a couple of hours to fill out - all for a 5 min interview in front of a teller screen.

But whoa the relief. I thought they might worry about the fact I've been to Iraq and Syria. Guess I must be a nobody enough! Surely they must google you, right? 

I'm going to hop-skip across the States interviewing some Assyrian historians and outside experts on the language. (There is one I hope to do with an expert on terrorism, but that's proving bit harder to pin down).

Hope it all works out.
