Dear all,

This is a gathering of couchsurfers and their guests (invite whoever you like) to know more about Omar Khayyam, his poetry and philosophy and also Persian culture in general and even traveling to Iran, still you don't need to be a fan of Omar Khayyam to attend our gathering (you may become one though after this). You can come just for the company.

* What are we going to do exactly?
We are going to sit next to each other and first we are going to introduce ourselves and share our CS experiences with others. After that we are going to take turns to recite poetry. Please bring your "Rubaiyat" in your language if you have one. We will also talk about Omar Khayyam and exchange ideas about his life and his philosophy.

Both of these two major things we are going to do (introducing and reciting poetry) are optional, not mandatory and you can join us just for the company.
