Hi everyone! Hope this Tuesday finds you well. I WAS going to make this the last of the series of blogs with my Iranian photos, but I’ve decided to split this into photos just from Shiraz and then next week I will show you photos from Persepolis and the day tour that I did from Shiraz. I haven’t a hell of a lot of photos from Shiraz for you, but I thought it was easiest to do it this way.
Shiraz was another stop in Iran which was just brilliant, and that was again because of the people. Wherever I went in Iran people wanted to meet me and practice English, and here I met this amazing Australian man called Charlie, who honestly is a legend in my mind, although I don’t know how he’s going or if he is still alive. He was in his early 80s when I met him, travelling solo in Iran. He’d just been solo in Yemen so he was a bit of an inspiration. We also got invited to an English class where we got to chat with a number of young students who then took us out to see the tomb of a prominent poet. Charlie and I also visited the main historic site in Shiraz, a citadel called Arg-e-Karim-Khan, where we met a few people including one guy who stuck to us like glue, which in the end annoyed Charlie quite a bit. Anyways, Enjoy!
Thanks for popping by today! Take care, and May the Journey Never End!
