Today we traveled to an amazing rug restoration facility. We were restricted in the photos we could take. They repair very Old museum quality rugs, and for security reason I shouldn't elaborate. In my ignorance, I asked, " why would they want to restore rugs with so much damage and fibers missing" --
cuz It's very Old was the reply, and added other unmentionable info.

Aaron Glosecose and Robert PettyJohn have joined the group now and the group will continue onto Iran tomorrow. Sadly, my visa wasn't approved in time so I will head back to Thailand.

The group is in Kerman after a few days in Shiraz visiting weaving villages and camps in the surrounding mountains. The internet is dial up slow and Facebook is mostly blocked so posting photos is next to impossible. The locals are incredibly hospitable, kind, and take every opportunity to overfeed us. I'll try to post some photos but doubt they will go through. Looks like it worked, but not so smoothly.
top picture is tea time in a Luri village, next is three ladies weaving a Gabbe on a horizontal loom, the last is the Vakil Mosque courtyard

Hope they post again soon..
Friday, November 4th was National "Death to America" day in Iran :eekk:
On November 4th 1979 was when the USA Embassy was seized and the Hostage crisis started.

Yep-- but Aaron said they wont be in Tehran on that day.
If I can follow the ClusterFuk correctly-- Iran is our "friend" in the Fight against ISIS in Iraq; but maybe not in Syria
Iran was also helpful in getting the current dictators of America into power..-- so they should be ok.

If you want to research more info-- But I highly advise against it-- for ignorance is bliss- watch some David Icke videos on Youtube.. most disturbing is the Rothchild Zionist videos.

Oh- and Turkey, which happens to be a Nato country may be turning against the USA.
Sure hope that OUR nukes stored in Turkey- have a way of being made inoperable from the US by the US.

Do you have to put a gag on Pettyjohn in order to keep the group out of jail? (or worse)
Uncanny, it's like you were there?

On a serious note,... Pettyjohn is a chick magnet all the young Iranian girls like to talk with him one even mentioned via our translator that she would like to marry an american as she winks and smiles at Pettyjohn :icon_question:
