28 Nov 2005 | Very tough times

House of Nader and Parvaneh

The past week has been very tough. I heard on Saturday, last week, that my father had been moved to a hospital. Later it turned out he had had a heart attack and brain damage. I was going to visit Iran in January but decided to go on Saturday instead.
Then, quite suddenly, on Friday morning, he passed away. Very tough times indeed.

Yesterday, we buried him.

I'm staying four weeks. I'm not sure if I'll be updating my blog much.
