Richard Engel treks 120 feet underground into Malian gold mine.
I’m not bogged down in fears. If I had to jump off a cliff, I would do so. If my survival depended on eating a three inch long roach, I’d find a way to choke that thing down.
But imagining being in a cramped, dark space underground does something awful to my ability to breathe.
Could you go into the mine if you had to? What’s your biggest fear?
