tabriz, iran

sunny 30 °C

i wont be long, the only computer i found working is the one of the managerof the cyber cafe...
i saved pics on my key, he reached to find it on computer! but i wont have the time to upload it right now!

i arrived in iran yesterday! i cannot stop beiing fascinated by colors, smells here. i sat down in a parc and look at those women all covered of black even hidding their mouth when they speak to mens, their eyes are like felins, like wild cats.
mystic country, i cannot understand everything, feel like watching a part, actors around me.
women part ofthe bus: very nice students will come to speak to me:)

im a bit sad, leaving van has been more difficult that i expected, the street athmosphere miss me: all those small business, but big action: included children selling tissues, sweets, washing sho9es... i really liked the district life, spent some time with leyla, disrict manager and all the neighboorhood came to see me, speak with me, invited me for tea, ice cream...
my kurdish friends invited me for beers in front of the lake before leaving, as the world turned a bit strangely around, we were singing our happiness and laughting so muych! they will bring me to the train station at 3am, and waited with me. i hugged especially mehmet, which helped me so much this week, i will miss him (art teacher). they told me that i was kurdish after all, one week here and io have to marry!

but everything has to have an end!
and i was much warmly welcomed here than what i excpected!
was invited by the controller of the train for breafast, he even show \ed me his "erotic" pics, with women mouths and hands... then a physiotherapeut explained me how to behave, where i have to go asnd called a taxi to bring me to the center of tabriz.
after a small walk, mahmoud working in telecommunication will invite me to have a tea in his office, and he will make me a sight seeing of tabriz, offer me a chewy ice cream from here! will be a nice time!
i didnt have the time to find my way back to the hostel \, already a n iranian family will invite me for dinner, and what a dinner!!!
huge soup, salad, yogurth, fruits, chicken rice, tea, cakes..... the father could speak a little english and wanted to practice so we spoked for a while, and the contact passed with other, just have some problems with the 7 days old baby XD
we really had fun, and they brought me back to th ehotel, today im going to isfahan, heard that its the most beautiful city in iran, when ytou are in the mosque you cfan feel like diving in an aquarium!
