colours of iran

After a week of reports from the field back in Iran, I will continue, slowly, making further posts on the original focus of this blog: trips, food, and photography.

We cannot ignore what’s happening there: as soon as I receive further news from my great Iranian friends I’ll post here.

Meanwhile, I’ll tell you about my impressions while I was in Iran, such a enchanting country, with one of the greatest hospitality in the world, with intelligent people — who are not necessarily happy with their Islamic government.

Iranian bazaars are colourful, vibrant, busy, and diverse.

We find vine leaves for sale — $ 3,000 toman, as they usually call it, or IRR$ 30,000 Rials, their official currency. This would be around USD$ 3. The amount of leaves? I haven’t learned yet how to read Persian, but only the Persian numbers. They stuff them with several ingredients: it’s called Dolmeh.

Although not frequently, we can also find some tea — here, some 14,000 toman, or IRR$ 140,000:

At the bird market, in Esfahan, we find artificially painted baby chicken, as well as beautiful birds.

And we also find delicious strawberries to add some more colours:

  1. kkkkk… Pintinhos coloridos foram os únicos bichinhos de estimação que eu tive na infância.

    Ah! Também tive uma tracajá (a Traquinha), só que ela acabou na panela (c’est la vie!)

    besos.
