Get some energetic vibes in Bam – When an Earthquake hit Bam

Get some energetic vibes in Bam – When an Earthquake hit Bam


“Bam is still here!”

said Mr. Panjalizadeh owner of the Akbar Guest House in Bam Iran.

“We get energy from you people who visit us.”

In 2003 a 6.6 earthquake hit Bam devastating the city. Most of my Iranian friends thought I was crazy to drive all the way to Bam. “There’s nothing there” they said. Nothing could be further from the truth. True the place had been wrecked but after visiting the stunning citadel I joined Mr. Panjalizadeh for tea in the garden of his guesthouse seriously damaged by the earthquake and which still resembles a construction site.

But opening his torn visitor’s books salvaged from the wreckage I read the treasured memories of his previous guests. I felt humbled by what I read and energized by this old man’s optimism.
