My beautiful Iranian friend, Neda Sarmast (with whom I've had many surreal experiences in Dubai), sends word that she has started a new online destination for cross-cultural discourse, debate and understanding. Once you log onto the site, you can create your own group, as well as join in on the larger chats. Her home base lives on Facebook here.
There's a lot of interesting stuff to dive into. You can choose to visit Iran and talk about Persian culture, or click the USA button for discussions on American culture. There are also existing communities for faith-based cultures, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist, with more to be added soon. On Neda's blog, you can read more about who she is, her personal journey, and why she decided to start this venture. Here's the link.
