Iran, then Marhaba it is! Wow such a rich history
in Persia as many still call it!

I was in Kuwait on the Persian Gulf now known as Arabian
Gulf. Oh yum the shrimp. Best Shrimp beds in the world
back then. It's what we served instead of popcorn and chips
at teen parties! It was in the mid '70's my dads job
had us living in a building overlooking the
royal palace. Met many of the royal family and
my parents freaked when a prince in line for
becoming the throne fell in love with me and showed
up at our apartment with his bodyguard, asked
for beer during Ramadan!?! I even went knocking
on the palace door one day, gorgeous entry, but
my visit was frowned on who knew I was only 16.
The royal family in an uproar too, my parents
shipped me to boarding school on the island of
Mallorca, Spain!

We also got out of Benghazi, Libya in '67, I was 7
right before Ghadaffi took over and imprisoned
all from other countries but soon released them
unharmed. Lived on Bahrain island too.

I have tales from many countries...

It's a small world, lots of good people in all the
countries I lived in!

Hugs,

DAnn

I worked in Kuwait for a year in 2015...what an interesting place. The whole middle east fascinates me.
I am in Canada, Fatemegshan...dont worry about your English. Its just fine.
Moving can be a lonely thing to do for sure-- if you are Muslim, there might be people at the mosque who you would like to know?
I am surprised that there is Narateen/naranon in Iran...thats awesome!
Yes--we understand what it is like to love someone with an addiction.
Are you a student too?

My mom is also an artist. Much of her art is Native American due to our ancestry.
Some modern some old school. Do you do old school or modernize yours?

I have many family heirlooms. My grandfather traveled the middle and Far East
with his job. Some is gorgeous old school vintage stuff purchased in the 1940's
through 1960's.

I have the hand of Fatima on my charm bracelet to ward off the evil eye.

My favorite piece hangs on the wall. Huge antique wood window shutter
doors from Bahrain.

Masalama JFT.

Hello, I don't understand much how to use this. I've been attending a Nar-Anon meeting for several months.
I was hoping to find a counselor close by. I think I'm ready to start my 12 step program. I'm on Palo Alto area (California)
Thank you, Julie.
