After leaving Amsterdam, I arrived in Tehran. Which was lots of fun. I talked to a lot of people on the plane and tried to get to know the people and how much things have changed. I took about 3 videos of just random people talking to me about the culture and current events that are happening. A couple of night shots of Tehran are above. I immediately went and saw my grandfather, and my dad’s Uncle, because visiting with the elders is something that is really important in the culture. We are getting ready for the wedding…. The rest is yet to come…

I am currently in Amsterdam right now. it's about 4.13 arizona time. It is really enxciting for me. Going to Koolhaus world. Actually I have been there many times before. That place amazes me. For one the airport is like no other. With showers, lounges, sleeping area, jogging area and etc. It goes to show how much they care about thier people. The other thing is the importance of creating space. As you land in the city, one can tell the importance of urbanization. Great architecture fills the sky lines and everything is LINED UP.

They know how to create spaces. They are so good at creating great architecture and it is so exciting for me to be in this atmosphere.

By the way the Killers, the band just arrived in Amsterdam. Rumor has it that they are going to be playing tonight! That is sooo freakin awesome, especially since I am so crazy about them. They know how to "read my mind" - Mona that one was for you!
