Day January 14, 2008
I went because: Iran has been on my list for some time, but it never seemed the “right time.” I decided to finally just go and see what was happening there for myself.
Don’t miss: Iman Square, Isfahan. Secret Parties, Tehran. The wonderful people, all over the country. Fabulous fabrics from many counties on the silk road.
Edmund Hillary (left) and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay approach 28,000 feet (8,534 meters) on Mount Everest on May 28, 1953. The next day Hillary would become the first human to stand atop the world’s highest mountain, with Tenzing joining him seconds later.
