The Persian Festival of Autumn, the Autumnal Equinox, and the Harvest Moon

Tonight is the Persian Festival of Autumn (called "Mehregan" in Farsi). The autumnal equinox has occured tonight at 11:09 pm ETS. Tonight, the last day of summer 2010 in the northern hemisphere, also coincides with a full moon. This is a rare event which happens every 20 years. Tonight the moon looks abnormally large and yellowish. At the sunset time, the moon light and the light of sun set were mixing together and created a beautiful twilight glow. Happy Autumn!

It's me after two years

It is hard to believe that it was two years ago today (September 19, 2008) when I stepped off the plane in the U.S. for the first time. It seems just like yesterday. These two years have been a wonderful adventure, very educational. I've learned so many things and I've changed a lot. I'm still learning and changing. Thank you America for giving me this chance.

Marina City Parking

Marina City is a mixed-use residential-commercial building complex occupying an entire city block on State Street in Chicago located on the north bank of the Chicago River. The complex consists of two corncob-shaped 65-story, 587 foot (179 m) tall residential towers, a saddle-shaped auditorium building, and a mid-rise hotel building all contained on a raised platform cantilevered over defunct railroad tracks adjacent to the river. Below is a zoomed in shot of the lower levels of one the towers which is used as a multi-level parking structure.

Wanna Share A Ride?

Honestly, I didn't find Chicago a bike friendly city. The vehicles' traffic on the roads is too crazy for cyclists to ride safely. Well, there is still a lot to do to make this city a real bike friendly place.
