I was away in Tehran representing my minister at the 2nd Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference on Housing and Urban Development. The first conference was held in New Delhi in 2006 and the next biennial meeting will be in Indonesia in 2010. There is a lot to talk about Iran and Tehran but this is not the blogsite for it.
On the day of our departure, our host surprised us delegates when we were given Iran stamps with our own countries' flags. This block of 4 stamps are probably the most unique and to see Brunei's flag and Iran's flag flying side by side. The stamps commemorated Iran's hosting of the ministerial conference.
