At the Baha'i World Centre

I am finally documenting a few moments from our (my son and I) trip to the Baha'i International Convention in April as part of a group of delegates from Guyana. The main purpose of the event was to elect the nine members of the governing body of the Faith. For more about the event see here.

This is a view from the part of the prison where Baha'u'llah was imprisoned.


Some friends relaxing at the visitor centre at Bahji.


A view of the building which is the seat of the Universal House of Justice.


A view looking down the mountain from the gardens around the Shrine of the Bab.


My son sleeping at Prague airport on the way back...

Truly an amazing trip and milestone in our lives.
