    Virtual cemetery
    A short tour of a very special final resting place

    I always wondered what Zahirodoleh cemetery looks like. I had heard that Forough Farrokhzad is burried there, as well as many other literary greats and old politicians.

    Then comes Ashkan Aryan, a 22-year-old amateur photographer. He sends an email saying he recently got into the cemetery -- after haggling with the gatekeeper; it's closed to the public -- and took a few quick snap shots. Would I be interested?
