Iranian woman cyclist Poupeh Mahdavinader arrives in Milan, Italy

Iranian woman cyclist, Poupeh Mahdavinader, who is cycling around the world (see full story: Iranian woman Poupeh Mahdavinader to travel around the world by bike) has arrived in Milan, Italy. She has sent the following notes and pictures to share with our readers. We wish Poupeh success in accomplishing her goals!

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...
