A Media Artist's Response To Failing Diplomacy

When BriAnna Olson's pacifist views were confronted by an adamant American couple, she decided to heed their challenge and head to Tehran-- the epicenter of the Axis of Evil nation.

Amongst a landscape of failed diplomacy and media smear campaigns, she and fellow artist Michael Pope found a society far more alive and hospitable than they'd ever been led to believe.

Like jesters of a modern-day Magellan, they've returned with stories and insights to a culture few American's have seen first hand.

First morning in Tehran

I am still not dreaming.
Today, I'll go with a shiner hejab. =)

    Welcome to Iran. Just discovered your blog and saw your "unconditional love" movie:)
    I hope all is going smoothly over here. I recommend that you try some of the theater scenes, many fun things going on in small theaters.
    If I could be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to message me in my blog.
    Have a good time.
