IRAN & GREEN CARD

... I guess it is difficult in these days to find employees willing to go to work in Iran ... so when I heard that my company was looking for people willing to go there for a project ... I showed some interest in it ... and I wrote about it ... to one of my senior colleagues ... he replied me back with a single word email ... and this word was ... insanity ... :) ... an other colleague ... was a little more elaborated ... but ... equally effective ... and he replied me back something like ... I didn't know the California beaches were that bad ... and an other one ... who already lives and works in Iran ... wrote me ... that he is really enjoying living in a country where ... globalization is just one of the useless words on the dictionary ... an Iranian colleague who is working here in US ... told me that with my interests ... I will enjoy for sure the historical beauties of Iran ... so here I am ... confused ... in a way I am really tempted to do a working experience in a country which is really unique ... and continue my ... walk the earth ... at the same time I feel like I need to stay here in US ... especially ... because I am in the process of requesting a green card ... and would be really really stupid to blow up everything now ... a green card is basically a permanent resident status in US ... and basically it would put me in the situation to continue to work here in US without any new working VISA ... and that is something really great ... but believe me ... I feel I am betraying what I like the most about my life ... walk the earth. So I promised to myself ... that if after I will get the Green Card ... there will be some opening for Iran ... I will go there for 6 months - 1 year ... I am pretty sure ... that I won't be able to live there for a longer period ... because ... I really believe that freedom and respect of the human rights ... are of the most precious values we have in the Western World ... and I don't want to give them up ... and ... unfortunately ... I don't think that Iran ... at the moment ... is a forerunner in freedom and human rights ...

Andrea hang till you get your Green Card. Iran will be there or may be by the time you get your GC Iran will be the 54th state of US so you don't need a visa, you can enjoy a perfect democracy & freedom of speech in Iran :D
