A loss and a detour

July 27th, 2008 · 6 Comments

A usually reliable source  (his mother)  reports that a TDT member has lost his wallet with his credit card, driving licence and $18, at a  lay-by on the road between Tabriz and Tehran. It apparently  fell out of his pocket while he was outside the car, switching seats. However, it’s also been learned that the shortfall will soon end with the arrival of a USAID package, handcarried by the spiritual leader. God Bless those Yanks.  The team is recovering  with a trip, 400 km south of Teheran, to Isfahan, a UN World Heritage Site, twice the capital of Persia, known for outstanding architecture and pale blue tiles.   They also apologise for the lack of longer updates.  A session in an internet cafe in Tabriz was interrupted when the whole town was plunged into darkness by a powercut.  They do promise some good photos and stories in due course.

    $18.? USAID payments can not be below $10m.

    I was nearly arrested in Isfahan in 1975 for knocking somebody’s teeth out!!

    Can you get to Turkmenistan by Friday?
    With your spirit, you are clearly most qualified to take the #4 seat.

    With the Imminent Arrival of the Spiritual Leader, I am wondering what Blessings He will bestow on our three young adventurists?
