USA Trip 2013

Hi everyone. Haiping has created a PPT in Chinese about our recent trip to the USA. You can download it here:

Download (download all the files)

BUT I should warn you that it make take over an hour to download everything and it will not be live until August 10, 2013.

Haiping is really excellent at making such things. The PPT has photos of our family and or our week spent at the Sheltering Shade Baha'i Summer School. There are two videos included.

WISR (Western Institute for Social Research)

My van parked outside of WISR. I meet with the president of WISR for about two hours and it was wonderful.

Marje Barajas



These four men were young boys when I first met most of them. Robert (on the right) was the oldest when I met them. He was 10 years old and I made them a cystal set (radio) much like my uncle had made for me. It had a similar impact on them. Their mother passed away while I was in the California and I was able to go to the funeral. These pictures were taken after the funeral. The mother's name is Marje Barajas. The sons are (from left to right) Sanford, Sean, Randy and Robert.

The young woman on the left in the above two photos I last met in Swaziland (southern Africa) when when she was nine years old. I have not seen her since then. We meet after the funeral. The world is small and very connected. Her name is Afi Mosteghim.
