Lucky you JD. I would love to be able to take a leisurely trip to Iran and be able to visit all the sites (and even just the regular kooche pass kooche ha) and travel all over. Someday soon I hope. Meanwhile thanks for sharing your experience with us so exquisitely.

And O' so nostalgic. Thank you for sharing it with us, and glad to see your articles after a long time. I have been a fan for quite sometimes.

 I e-mailed pix 6 thru 16 to myself. I love the pix with crystals,  chandeliers, honeycomb dome, and colorful tiles. They are so gorgeous, they blew me away!

Thank you sooooo much for sharing! I know one of these days, I will visit there myself. If I don't do that, my life will be incomplete!!!!
