Hi Anita! My mom was born in Tehran, though I've never been. We still have family there, though I don't speak any Farsi. When was the last time you were there and how have things changed since you were born there?
Dear Cynthia, The last time I was in Iran was 2002. I'm really longing to go back for a visit. Now that the nuclear deal has been signed, I'm hopeful that things will change in both directions, for the good of everyone.
The changes that have taken place in Iran during the course of my life have been huge. I'm sure you are familiar with the basics, but if not, I'd be happy to recommend some good books.
Are you interested in visiting and/or in learning Farsi? Best, Anita
