On Monday we were up by 8AM for breakfast at Ali-Sadr hotel near Hamadan. We left shortly afterwards for Ghear-e-Ali Sadr which is the largest cave containing water in the whole world.

Once we had reached, we split up into groups and got into smaller boats, which took us deeper into the cave. It was beautiful! The water was so clear we could see right through it. After a few minutes we reached a small opening where we got out of the boats and were spoken to by a tour guide.

He told us more about the cave; e.g.- the cave was 12km long however we would not be able to explore all of it since the oxygen levels are quite low.  We walked for 1 km up the stairs, which was very tiring but it was definitely worth it. During our ride, we saw stalactites hanging from the ceiling, and the name “Allah” was formed around it.

We returned to the hotel for lunch and Namaaz and then packed to leave for a 6 hour bus journey back to the holy city of Qum.

It was a beautiful morning: Tuesday 13 August 2013 was the day we left Dubai for our summer course. That flight was pretty long for me … I was just waiting for it to land … and we finally landed in Tehran and went to Qum, then came the  moment I was waiting for— our arrival in Jamiatuz Zahra.

It was a really touching moment for me as Jamia was my dream. So every morning that I would wake up, I would look around smiling, thinking to myself, “I’m living my dream”.
