I don't know how reasonable it will be to take the risk and actually go to Iran, though. I have to do more research on this issue. From what's going on in the world, it might be very dangerous and we may be forced to cancel it. Don't you think so? We'll see in a couple of months anyways. I must also think about the time we want them to be in Turkey (is this the country we are going to go?) . First, we talked about Summer. Then the project stretched from 6 months to 1 year and you moved it to November or something like that in the proposal. Unfortunately, due to the cold season and school season related reasons, we might face some difficulties to invite people to Turkey (you know that Turkey can be very cold at that time.) My opinion is that we should push the conference to late Summer and at worst, early early Fall. This will need a re-plan since we should find enough things to take care of for the rest of 5 or 6 months.
Yes, that would be great to co-work with Alex. I will get to learn a lot for sure. Please introduce me to him and we'll keep in touch. I should also start talking to the NGOs in Turkey and start building some bridges.
I'm going to be out of town from 30th to April 3rd. I can start full force from 4th. There will be a lot of emails and calls to Iran and Turkey. I will also look again for effective courses on this subject. I don't even mind to go to Europe if they have some wonderful programs on my own budget. I will let you know soon.
Congratulations once more my friend. Feeling the progress is always joyful.
