What's wrong with featuring a successful person twice in two years? If theres NEWS that his company is thriving, can't he be recognized? I'd love you to recommend anyone else to be featured as Iranian of the Day.

I have been to twin cities many times - perhaps hundred times. My second favorite place in US - San Francisco being first - you'll find most educated and polite people - stats show highest density of bookstores in any US City for Minneapolis.

Bahram Akradi has raised the standard even higher. I do recommend staying at Arkadi's Frand Hotel too. My other favorite place is Caspian (Deli and Restaurant with great food). I don't know any of the owners in person and they don't know me. But they run fine businesses.
