Iranian of the day

May 12, 2004

Cheshmeh Kohrang
I am standing in zero degree freezing waters yards away from the source of "Zayandeh Roud" river not too far from Isfahan. I stood there for about 15 seconds when I could no longer feel my legs and had to get out. The water simply gushes out of the belly of rocks. It's wonderful yet scary.

This was August 2003. Nearby Bakhtiari nomads lived in their goat's wooltop tents. The air was as clear as you can get. In the other two pictures you can see the hole from which the river appears. The other one is my family and I at the entrance of a glassier with snow from hundreds of years ago. Iran has some great places to see if you know where to look.
