DISPATCH BY: AVA ANSARI
So Ava's driving the RV and telling me the story of how her Grandmother was one of the first women in Iran to get a truck driving license and how she taught her to drive trucks in Tehran when she was a kid so the RV was not a problem.
We pull up at the New Jersey Turnpike toll station and Ava gives the lady in the booth a 10 dollar bill. She's listening to music on these really cool red headphones, wearing a dayglow yellow safety jacket and mirror sunglasses which make her look like a raver.
The toll lady passes Ava the change and says "good luck". Ava unfolds the bill and smiles at me. It says 'Good Fortune' in Farsi ...
