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.

We've made it through Security

We're at JFK now and I'm delighted to say everything has so far been seamless. We were sent through secondary security due to "our destination" and even that was a breeze.

It's quiet. I'm watching CNN and catching up on emails. Michael is fiddling with his new digital camera- a kodak point and shoot that we picked up at b&h yesterday.

I'm hoping I didn't forget anything...

The nice man just announced that we are boarding in 10 minutes-- and it looks as if I have a window seat.

Oh, squee.
