Watering trees planted by kids in summer

Aug
10
We have planted about 700 trees in winter with kids from different schools. This is a very hot and dry summer and we should look after those trees. So, we organized a weekly tree watering every Thursday afternoon and with some volunteers we go there ( North of Tehran in an area called Tellow ) to water those trees. This is an amazing experience and hardly can exprexx how lovely is to water those trees which one can feel how thursty they are, how dry the soil is and how fresh they become afterward.

New frame designed for myself

Apr
02

 After over 10 years of cycling and using a bike which was 5 CM bigger for me, finally I ordered a new bike. 
I ordered it to a Duatch company but somehow the promissed didnt go right and I got back only a frame for 950 EUR which is too expensive for me while I could have a complete bike for 1800 EUR. I shouldnt forget that this bike is custom made and this is so normal to be expensive but if I knew our promisses( the owner of the company and I ) will not follow, I wouldnt order it and I would try to diffeent way to get a bike which I can use when I need it

4 days ag, I was going to come to Mashhad from Tehran by car. in a very shoort moment, someone broke into my car and stole my duffle bag which was filled with all my equipments. The hardest part was losing my passport, ID car, Swiss simcard, Banc card, and 2 hard drives full of picturesa nd videos from my journey, also tent, mattress, sleeping bag, 3 pair of shoes.....ooops!! ) 
It wasnt fun at all but not much I can do now and I have to restart again from the very beginning to collect those equipments again and get my documents which doesnt have a funny procedur. 
Anyway....life is going forward and I should follow it. 
I will be back on the road soon.....just need to get prepared again.
These days I am training harder and palanning my journey. I am going to go back to the road in a month.
