Fari & Mansour have been waiting for the container of almost everything they own for over a month now. The container left Iran sometime in September and arrived in Seattle around October 10th. This container has survived a fire at sea, being held ransom by the ship captain & the Port of Seattle & barely survived inspection by the Dept. of Agriculture.

To make a long story short - Fari & Mansour had to secure a lawyer & pay lots of money (to many waiting hands: lawyer, Port of Seattle, the shipping company) to get their own belongings back (after they already paid the fees before leaving Iran). It's enough to make you have a nervous breakdown.

Yesterday - they could finally celebrate the arrival.

It's here!

Opening the container (& waiting with bated breath).

It's all good.

Thank God! Finished!
