I left Iran the first time after the revolution, in 1979. My family and I moved to California, but had to come back to Iran two years later. We left the country again, this time for France in 1984, in the middle of the war. I later decided to move to Canada to pursue my studies in Biology, and came back to France 8 years later, for my PhD. I let go of my career as a scientist and decided to start a whole new life, which has led me to where I am today. After the loss of my father almost 4 years ago, I decided to move back to Iran, 30 years later, to see this country and its people with my own eyes. I have traveled a lot to different parts of the country, mainly alone and I have enjoyed every single bit of it!
