Netherlands....starting point

Oct

After I arrived to Amsterdam Human was waiting for me in the airport. I knew Human since I was around 17-18. We used to go for cycling together but after he moved to Netherlands I had no idea where he is what he is doing till last few years that we found each other again through internet in Hospitality club.
It was amazingly nice feeling to have him again in my friends list and since over we were in touch and I should honestly say that he did more to keep our friendship. I am grateful for all his kindness.
And now after such a long time we could meet again but Amsterdam this time.
First time in Europe, it was nice feeling and I actually started from the bicycle land. After we get out of the train in station I saw a huge number of bicycle and cyclist!! I actually got nerves.

Planting tree in Den Haag

Oct

When I was in Iran just a week before departure I received 2 guests from Netherlands who I met the a year before in Azerbaijan.
Fatma Bulaz and her brother.  She already knew about my project because we had done it in Azerbaijan where she was working as a volunteer.
She managed 2 schools here in Den Haag for tree planting.
First we went to visit Our World School ( Onze Wereld in Dautch ). Narin who was the teacher kindly managed everything and we had a wonderful workshop.
There was a Power Point to present and some discussion about trees which kids loved it ( I hope so !).
At last we planted a tree all together.  An apple tree which was donated by the principle of school.
I should also be grateful for Fatma Aktas who came as a member of UPF ( universal peace federation ) to join our workshop

Another vacation finished and I am back to the road!!

I was at home since I left Tajikistan in August 2011.
after I went back home I was trying to find some people, united them and make a kind of NGO for our work. It took me few months but honestly I should say all the efforts failed. Unfortunately I was not able to make things organized and I should admit which I am not a team leader. To organize a team the very first thing I should do is to be available but it was hard for me to stay somewhere for so long !!! I am a nomad!!! I felt I need to move myself and the others were busy with their job and of course they have things to do themselves in a very messy society of Iran with all crises that we are facing with.
It was winter and I began to cycle in desert toward south and after almost 2 months I got an offer for a job. It was a nice one and I also could make some money to do my responsibilities against my family.
The job also took me few months and I finished around June. The other contract were on the corner and my colleagues asked me to stay longer to do those projects
