Bump in the road

Unfortunately, a key member of our production team has had to leave for personal reasons. We are trying to figure out what this means, but it's clear that we won't be able to accomplish everything we had planned. Right now it seems that the best course of action is to cancel our plans to attend Burning Man this year, and focus on the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. It will be a hard decision to make, but we'll just have to make an educated guess based on what we know. Most importantly, we wish Rachel well, and hope that her departure from the project makes her life easier right now.

Another blogger takes interest

The show hasn't been put up yet, but already it's sparking controversy. It's interesting to see what motives people assume I have.

Bloggers take interest...

A political blog has taken interest in our show. Click on the title of this post for a link to the blog. Search that page for "Civic Center Park" to see the first of many entries. I wonder if they will really come picket our show?

Back in the U.S.A.

Leaving Iran is always bittersweet. Or maybe just bitter. It's always nice to return home, but very hard to leave Iran not knowing whether I will be able to go back. In a few days, I will drop the pseudonym I have been using (Yechdosay Chahar), and will put my fate in the hands of the Iranian government. Will they like what I am doing and therefore be happy to give me another visa someday? Will they dislike it and deny my visa application? Will they grant me a visa but follow me when I return to Iran, possibly creating problems for my friends? There is no way to know right now.

In any event, I had a productive flight from Dubai to Houston, beginning the process of editing the interviews I conducted on this trip.
