In the very early morning it was time to leave! Ipue's guest from Düsseldorf came to pick up me
in my box and met it very vorsichtig in his handbag and ipue called a taxi - the yellow ones are taxis here! And we went together to the airport, checked in (thanks god nobody was asking about the little box!) And in the early morning at 4.3o our plane left tabriz and IR!
For me it was time to leave!!! because I stood here nearly 3 month and my visa would be finished after a few days?!
Thank you, dear ipuenktchen! It was great with you and your family and as well with POSSY & CROSSY!
And now I'm ready for further exciting trips! pleas everybody stay tuned!

there was a lot of young folks and they were chatting and dancing and laughing - and at the other point they were so great and helped a lot in making and serving tea, doing the dishes and so on!!!! there is the habitude that iranian dinner parties have hundreds kind of hors-d'oeuvres, meals, salads, desserts AND SO ON............

Wedding anniversary

Today the recently wedding couple had the idea to go downtown to search once more for some furniture... and they proposed to go together with ipue and her husband, and of course she was so kind to take us with her!!! ;-) So we went to some chair galeries to choose one type of chair and request a series.. and we were so happy ipue profite to take a pic of us playmos....
After instead of going home we understood ipue's son had chosen another road but not straight home!?! And finally we went to a very large area with a very large building inside, built like by LEGO... Oh, we were so astonished... There is a hotel, a swimming pool, restaurant, coffee-shop, wedding palace and much more..... And a beautiful park around!
Ipue's son adviced us to go into the coffee-shop! boahhhh - how beautiful.. It's a long time, perhaps about 1o years, ipue hadn't been here and it was a real surprise!What a large long crystal luster, how beautiful furniture, the columns decorated by beautiful glass tiles and so on.. A very cosy place!
And when we sit down ipue's son & wife met a vase with flowers (stolen from the park... hehe..) on the table and congratulate their parents for their 41th wedding anniversary!
Lucky ipuenktchen & husband!
(they will be registered as a WORLD CULTURAL HERITAGE very soon)

But on the way we had a VERY rainy, stormy, foggy, snowy weather - well, it's the coldest area of IR in the mt sabalan highlands!!!!
At 28th april was the great date we went to the city of ipuenktchen's son2's gf asking for the daughter's hand in marriage! By accepting their mutual proposals we celebrated the engagement!
Everything happened during TWO DAYS!!!
And everybody is so happy!!!
And me, I was so happy, that ipue took all the playmos with her!!!
Although her elder son asked her not to let out the playmos there... Harharhar...
The day after was fixed to celebrate the wedding ceremony! Wow... it seems we are the first travelling toys taking part in a marriage!?!? Unbelievable!!! We were sooooo excited!
And naughty ipuenktchen finally took a photo of us at the wedding table!
Well, in Iran it's a great thing to get married and still not only a matter between the young couple, but their parents are involved, too! It's a huge question if the father of the girl accept the proposal and in which way... And the father of the guy has to support his son! It's a great job to finish this and everybody agrees.

The bride's father had invited for lunch!
But there is also a huge difference in an arranged marriage, where the guys will be proposed to get married with a special daughter choosen by his mom or sister, they hadn't perhaps seen each other never before until they are going to the house of the girl to announce the guy!? But for many guys this is nowadays no longer possible!
The playmo guests tired and happy ready to go back home to tabriz to ipue's!
And so we wish all the best to the nice wedding couple. - happiness, healthy, wealthy!

In Hottest Point Of World With MissLondon

It's about two weeks,raining heavily in Tabriz.Everywhere is wet,Green and the weather is so clean!I couldn't go anywhere but i think someone is happy due to the rain,,,,MISSLONDON!

I remember the day we were in hottest place of the world,Gandom beryan in Kerman province,where we were on holiday in persian people say: Yadesh Bekheir!means,Oh Those Lovely Days...!!!

...That day we started our journey with Shazdeh Garden about 45 Km from Kerman.

The garden is 5.5 hectares with a rectangular shape and a wall around it. It consists of an entrance structure and gate at the lower end and a two-floor residential structure at the upper end. The distance between these two is ornamented with water fountains that are engined by the natural incline of the land. The garden is a fine example of Persian gardens that take advantage of suitable natural climate.

Like any other Persian Garden there was a traditional bath but museum.Wax Statues:

Then again 3 hours in car to reach the Shahdad Kaloots,kaloots are made by wind carrying sand and the shape of kaloots is changed every day,totally AMAZING!

Just few miles away erth's hottest point,Gandom Beryan. No one has gone there but the temperature is 66 degree! Gandom-e Beryan is the name of a hill with an area of 480 square kilometers, which is covered with blackened volcanic lava. The hill has been introduced as the world’s hottest point where temperature in the shade rises as high as 67 degrees centigrade in summertime!

Later we went to Rayen Castle or arg e Rayen where is made of adobe.
The well-preserved medieval mudbrick city of Rayen, is similar to the Arg-e Bam city which was destroyed in an earthquake in December 2003. Rayen displays all the architectural elements of a deserted citadel.
Arg-e-Rayen was inhabited until 150 years ago and although believed to be at least 1,000 years old.

after having lunch,in the evening we arrived in Kerman,i went to see Kerman's library too!

The day After we left Kerman to come back Tabriz,we had a Visit in Yazd.The city was very busy and we just could see Yazd's Jamea mosque

Yasi have seen Yazd for 2 times before and she says there's so lovely place but in normal time!And Now, it's raining again in Tabriz!WOW!!!!
