Today I got a pleasant surprise on Yahoo Instant Messenger from my uncle Farhad’s son Farshad. This is the first time Farshad and I have made contact in 31 years (that’s how old Farshad is now). The Internet does bring people closer. Farshad is quite an accomplished photographer. I was trying to share my photos on Flickr with him, but he told me he cannot access Flickr. I’m not sure why that is.
