Where to next?

I was born in Kumasi, Ghana, and grew up around the world, graduating from high school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. But after returning to the United States in 1995 to go to college, I haven’t left the country except for a brief visit to Haiti in December of 1997. But last week I went to Rome and man oh man did that trip awaken a deep appetite for finding the rest of the world.

So when Gina suggested that I join this trip to Iran, I started to get excited. I haven’t signed up yet, but I’m very very interested and seriously considering joining the trip. (plug: Buy some of my flower photos and help me find the cash to go.)

Given my interest in poetry, Iran has special significance. But just as important, Iran is home to significant blogging community. This weekend at the Harvard Law Internet & Society conference I discovered Hodder and my interest and knowledge of Iranian blogging intensified.

So if anybody out there has any suggestions for me — on whether I should go to Iran, and who I should meet there, and what I should see there — bring it on.
