Colors of Life

I got my second chance to visit Iran during Nowrouz (since I left back in 77). My mother-in-law had not been feeling well, so we planned to spend most of the time with her in Karaj—however she was up for a short trip when we first arrived, so we ended up heading up to Shomal (Caspian Sea) before Eid to beat the crowds. It was simply wonderful! We were back in Karaj in time for 4-Shanbehsoori – It’s not like the old days. No ghaashogh zani and there were no signs of real botteh to fire up. Folks used wooden boxes etc. (at least in our neighborhood). Lots of fire crackers though…just not the same as the old days….sigh Flowers had bloomed everywhere. On the first day of the new year, as we were looking out at the wisterias in the garden, it started to snow! Here are some pictures I managed to take during our short trip … Do stay tuned for the next photo essay of my visit to Vafa Animal Shelter in Hashtgerd. — Faranak Ravon 12345678 next › last »
