Away and Home

I am in a familiar city next to dear and old friends. My friends are looking after me and making a fuss over me, spoiling me to no end! I went to visit two lovely old ladies, a Qajar princess and her cousin, yesterday afternoon. Though I was really tired after my long flight and jet lag, their stories were so fascinating, I stayed awake and energized throughout the visit. They showed me pictures of themselves when they were children and young girls in Tehran, some of those pictures 85 years old! I will share some of the stories with you over the coming days and weeks, if I can write them the way I heard them, full of joy of life and optimism.
My friends are taking me to a fundraising event for an organization which builds schools in the rural areas of Iran. I am really interested in that work and I will share whatever I find out with you. For now, I am going to wind down and relax, worrying less about my life and responsibilities back home. Have a good Thursday you all!

سلام نازی عزیز

من هم یک بار پارسال یا پسر عموی پدرم که 91 سالش بودو اتفاقا خودش و همسرش هردو تاریخی بودن صحبت میکردم داستان های فوق العاده ای برای شنیدن داشت
اگر اشتباه نکنم همسرشون نوه باقر خان می شد
