Trip Report Just back from 18 days in Iran ... here are some photos

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I had an amazingly wonderful time in Iran. Tehran, Esphahan, Shiraz, Yazd, Nai'in, Abyaneh, Alamut Valley, Tabriz, and lots of other places in between. A day at Persepolis was one highlight among many, as was another day spent with nomads in their winter homes. Everywhere we went we met warm and welcoming people, eager to speak with us and to hear our opinions of their country. We openly introduced ourselves as Americans and always encountered friendliness and kindness, often lightened by humor about the politicians in our respective countries.

Here are some of my photos: http://jmstudio.fotopic.net/c1606257.html

I don't have a trip report as such, but will try to pull together some of the details if anyone is interested.
