Few weeks ago we Baba and Maman, your Grandparents in Vienna, where they are currently staying. We arrived exactly on Halloween night and although in Iranian culture Halloween is not customarily celebrated, your Grandparents prepared a pumpkin in our honour. Baba was the artist who carved the 2012 Halloween Pumpkin you can see on the table in this picture. To delightfully rejoice our visit they made cakes and opened champagne, and Maman prepared a very nice dinner. I haven’t seen my Mum for over 2 and half years, and my Dad for over 7 months, so I was happy to see them in a reasonable health. I haven’t seen you for almost 7 years; this is a really long time… I miss you terribly and I really hope you will agree to see me when you will be able to decide for yourself… I look forward to this moment with many hopes, joy, fear and excitement…
I am your dad Atria.
