    Thanks for taking us again on another fabulous adventure in a part of the world that we don’t know too much about (except in terms of war and politics). Your photos are wonderful! Whether you are climbing mountains, sliding down sand dunes, exploring local markets, or teaching core strengthening to a group of eager women–your love of life and adventure always comes through.

    What great photo’s Billi. You got to see and do so much in such a short time. I’m sure both you and Gerlinde were an inspiration to all the women you met in Iran

    My great dear Billi, however you came to Iran during the Political Tsunami has surrounded Iran since about 30 years ago, but I think you can see with your especial intelligent the ancient soul of the people in this area of the world…
    Specifically Women in Iran are trying to approach to their rights and ascend to their competency’s summits. From now on I feel you are one of them and Iran has added to your nationality. Khosh Amadid (Welcome in Persian) in your country and your sisters share you on their dreams…

      Arman, what is the meaning of “…the political Tsunami has surrounded Iran…. ancient soul….women….rights…”? Can you understand the meaning of these terms, these concepts? Where is your ancient soul? Truly, where is your ancient soul?
      This is mountaineering website, no floor of street or a platform of motto.
      My great dear Arma!! Please find out your ancient soul.
