I am very happy that even with all the difficulties and obstacles in this trip, the kind God has never made his presence pale, and I feel that God has opened a window to the heaven for me. I now feel very clearly that to receive blessing, all that is needed is sincerity and honesty.
I'm sending you a few pictures that I took in Assisi, the birthplace of San Francesco. I'm now waiting in Milan to hear from US Consulate about my visa application.
I also wanted to let you know that a person has printed IRNA's news about me along with three pictures that have no resemblance to me and has sent copies of that to many people. And I just received this email from a person who had said people thought I'm veiled... and had sent me copies of the pictures. Please tell people that this is the work of a person who is not psychologically stable, and that I'm both Muslim and veiled and this is what I believe in, both religiously and in my heart, and this is not to adhere to Islamic Republic's dress code, but it's rather my own belief. I wonder if this perhaps the work of the people who have sent me email and asked me to seek political asylum...
