Made in Palestine

The Seezdeh bedar kabaab turned out to be quite delicious, thanks to the yogurt, onions, lemon juice, and advieh marinade. Of course, the accompanying basil, tarragon, mint, green onions, and salad shirazi made the whole noon-o-kabaab experience heavinly. Since a good friend of mine works on the weekends, we did our Seezdeh bedar a day earlier than the rest of the Iranians in the Bay Area. But it was nice to enjoy the sunny day and the green grass in the state park in Alameda beach. I attempted to grade some papers, but all the blood had rushed from the brain to the stomach, and hence the pile of un-graded papers on my desk today!

This Thursday (April 7th), Made In Palestine, a collection of works by 23 artists from Palestine and its diaspora will debut in San Francisco. The gallery will be at SomArts through April 21. A series of events will also happen during the Made in Palestine Tour in SF. See the program for this great project here.
