My buddy Li and I had a fantastic time. We requested opportunities to meet and talk to ordinary Iranians and Norma was extremely helpful in making this happen. Not that we didn't appreciate the incredible historical sites but our hope was to get a feel for what the people were interested in and considered important. We were late in deciding to go and we weren't sure if we could get a Visa, so we were so pleased with the magic Norma was able to do for us and I'm not at all sure that everything would have gone so smoothly with her. Big thank you!
