Apr

Before I leave Rome to go to Iran and exactly when I had no clue what to do with my bike, I got invited to dinner by Manuele Fattorossi . first I thought he is one of random guys I met in Rome but when he came, I realized I have never met him and he just sw my pictures in one of his friends page ! 
2 hours before our appointment I called him to see if I can store my bike in his house and he kindly accepted. 
I stayed at night in his house and early morning he sent me to airport at 5 am ! 
While having dinner at home with his lovely family he offered to talk to his son's school for my project. 
right after I return to Rome we went to the Religiose del SS.Sacramento school to talk to students and share some ideas. 
Thanks a lot dear Manuele and Monja Pansini for helping me to do my job.

Visiting Montessori school in Zurich and planting tree in a kinder garden in Wil

Jan
25

I came back to Montessori school to visit a class and also to thank them for their support.
When I visited the school first time in 2012, Mrs Rachelle Olson helped me a lot to reach more classes and about 10 months later she organized a book sale in the school. 
kids brought some second hand bok and some mothers backed some cookies or...for the market and afterward they sent me the money to support my journey and " we need trees" project. 
so it was nice to go back there and meet them again and thank them.
Also I had a chance to have another class and workshop with another group of kids

Oct

I visited International schoolof Geneva 2 years ago when I was in Switzerland first. It was all by chance and a simple request to hold a workshop but the vice principle Mrs Banks helped to manage 7 workshops and now after 2 years I went back to visit some of the classes. 
It was so interesting to visit allthose kids again and surprizingly they remembered most of their questions from last 2 years. the most interesting question was from a 6 years old girl " what will happen when you grow up and your bicycle becomes small for you?"

Visiting International school of Geneva after 2 years

Oct
10

After 2 years I returned to Geneva again and I had the chance to visit International school in Geneva where my good firned Marci Banks is working. 
I met the kids I have had met them 2 years back when they were 6 years old.
Surprisingly they remembered all the questions they have asked me 2 years ago which was kind of amazing feeling for me.  One of them had asked me " what will I do when I grow up and my bicycle becomes small for me !!"  in that time I began to laugh and answered her " I am enough grown up now...I wont go higher anymore !" and this time she were enough big to know that a person does not keep growing all his life. 
I am still hoping to return there again to visit more classes. 
and below is a text by Marcia Banks about my visit to the school 

Mohammad visited several classes ranging in ages from 5 to 8 year olds, sharing what he does, how he lives, indirectly confronting the young children with the thought that one can live without the material goods we take for granted and still be very happy.  The warmth he exuded soon put the young children at ease as

These days I am focusing on the association ( www.weneedtrees.net ) to start in Iran. We have a great progress here in Iran and soon I will go to Switzerland to do some work there with our board members.
I need to commute between Iran and Switzerland quite often in coming months to make sure things working properly.
But I am just missing my bike and hopefully soon I will find a chance to ride it at least for a little while.
