    Wonderful interview!
    She spoke so eloquently and wisely.

    Thank you Dr. Dave for inviting a guest from that part of the world of which I almost know nothing…

    Dr Dave, no need for fear.
    I have just returned from Iran and, indeed, the generosity of spirit, hospitality, and the welcoming nature of, what seemed like the majority of people, was enough to make a grown man cry in his hotel room.
    I am already planing my return.
    And to cap my return would be a visit to Dr Gohar’s group as a quest listener.
    Be Brave, Dave.
    Although you might need a different passport.
    Khoda hafes,
    Jon Doust
