Beautiful picture! Especially #009 which seems to be taken at Langerud's farmers' market's Stone Bridge (a part of which is seen in the bottom left of the pic) that is some 300 years old from late Safavid era -- crossing one of the branches of Sepidrud! It's good to see it's still in good shape! :)

Beautiful Pics,Beautiful Place !

I visited Lahijan just a weekend and it was a wonderful moment. the weather is great, the landscape is stunning, the food is so delicious ( i still do remember the yummy baghalighatogh )  In a Free Iran this place could have the must luxurious SPA or thermal resorts where people could go to rest & relax, it could be much better than Evian les bains (or any swiss place) ! Heif cheghadr Heif !!

What a gem! Lahijan is on my list.

If Iran would ever open up to the rest of the world (culturally, that is), Lahijan alone would bring it billions of dollars in tourism!
