I was so impressed from the great tiles-work at Sheikh Safi al-din Khānegāh and Shrine Ensemble in Ardabil, which we had a look around just after arriving at ardabil, the capital of the province with same name and with about 350.000 in habitants, about 220 km far from tabriz and about 75 km far, but 2000 m higher from the caspian sea!!!!


like other beauties - as ipue told me - in esfahan for instance built by shah esmail I, here you can see his monument!!


and here is the entry of sheikh safi ensemble:


later we had a little walk around and I saw a fruit I hadn't seen before, and ipue told me it's time of pomegranate harvest now!


after a tasty lunch at home we went to the wedding saloon for the women's gathering!!! and I was allowed, too, coz I'm a girl!!!!!!!!!!!! juchuuuuu!! and here I am in the saloon with the beautiful mirror mosaics!!!!

Posted Oct 18, 2013, 8:24 pm
great weather, great day, great apple-harvest!!!
we went today to another garden and there were soooooo many apple-trees!!!! full of apples, yellow and red, sooooooo many!!!!!!!!!!!
and we were invited to pick them, as much as we need!!!! wow, how generous!!!


first of all ipuenktchen made pictures - what else??  :D :p


her hubby and me, ZIZZI, started to pick up the apples... it was fun!! but my legs weren't long enough to climb into the trees... :-(((((( what a pity!!!!!!! but there had been ppl soooo tall that they didn't need any ladder!!!  :o


did you ever heard about SENJED???????????? It's a sweet powdery dehydrated silver berry also called oleaster fruit, mostly to find in central asia and nearly allover IRAN.


on the terrasse we had a yummy late lunch, and just when we would go back to tabriz, three more cars arrived and more ppl start to pick the apples... so we got busy with tea and pastry looking at them..  :D


while getting dark they served a great stew, and as the weather got cold after sunset, it was nice to warm up our hands and more..
it was a fantastic day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D


Posted Oct 22, 2013, 9:26 pm
hi, leutz!!! today beautiful weather and another ride downtown!
as I hadn't seen not yet that much from tabriz, I agreed immediately!!

the so called *city* begins up from this bridge at abressani cross road!


later I saw beautiful flowers, looking like red cabbage, haha!!! ipue told me they plant them
every fall and stay sometimes even under the snow!!


then we bought some *yufka*-dough to make some apple strudel to use from these tons of apples
at ipue's home!! I'll show you the pics for sure!!! promised!!!!!

Posted Oct 24, 2013, 12:44 am
hi, leutzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!
today I made my very first APPLE STRUDEL in my life!!!!!! and ipue was helping me a bit.... oeeeehm........

pls have a look and you can learn it, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

first I cut the apples very thin... 


next I mixed sugar & cinnamon and then I washed the raisins! :-))))


then I met a tea towel on the table and a bit flavour on and then the dough and pretty joghurt on and then the apple-mix!!


and then the *fight* began - to wrap it!!!!!!!!!! I got wholes and wholes and wholes, took more dough to close the wholes and finally instead of one lay of dough I used FOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! shame on me...


but I won the battle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)))))))))))))

and here you can see my *masterpiece* after half an hour in the oven!!! *smile


Posted Oct 24, 2013, 3:35 pm
hi, leutzzzzzzzzzz!!!!

did you ever heard about christians living in IR??? there are a lot and living mostly in urumieh, tabriz, tehran & esfahan!!! so I will show you today a church in tab!!!!


and later we dropped by at an ancient leather factory, registered as a cultural heritage and often used for exhibitions and different courses of art university!!

Posted Oct 25, 2013, 11:04 pm
hi, leutzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!
as there are endless apples at ipue's we have endless apple strudels and apple pies..... ey gosh... is there anybody who has another recipe for us??????????????!?!?!?! here you can see our today's production!!


Posted Oct 27, 2013, 7:42 pm
hi, leutz!!!!!
not that pretty nice weather, but ok.......... and as ipuenktchen had some things to do downtown I hope she ask me to come with her and so she did!!!!


at first like usually at the main post office - where else????!!!?!? she went up to the 6th floor and it was so great to have a bird's-eye-look over tabriz!!!! I didn't understood why she wasn't courageous enough to get the permit to take a pic from there....!!?!?!? what a pity!!

later we went to the famous Blue Mosque, as she promised me days ago.. the khaghani garden was so beautiful with all the fall flowers!! and wooooooow, the mosque beside so impressing!!! built in the middle of the 15th century and destroyed in an earthquake in 18th century, they rebuilt it during the seventies of 20th century and they were just closing the dome when ipue moved to IR in 1976.

pls have a look around:

hi, leutzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!
I made it, I made it, I made it!!!! I made it to tehran, the one and only capital of IR!!!! 14 millions inhabitants, what a crowd, what a noise, what a traffic, what a mess, what an air pollution!!!!! but it's beautiful at the same time, I can assure you!!!!!! we heard from radio in the taxi, that it was raining this day in the whole country, but lucky us, it was raining in tehran before our arrival!!!!!!

had you ever seen this funny traffic light manikin from tehran????


normally we don't eat any fast food... but this one is very tasty and always completely fresh!!! and so we did today before entering the bus back to tabriz!! in other case we would stay hungry all the way.. coz we started at 5.30 PM and arrived at home at 2 AM!!!


as ipue and her hubby were so busy all the day and we passed several times the tehran sign *AZADI TOWER* by taxi or bus I couldn't imagine to reach it to see it from nearby and could have a pic, even on a clowdy day like today!!!!?!?


it was designed by a young IR architect and built in 1968!

Posted Nov 6, 2013, 5:36 pm
hi, leutzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!

a ride downtown into bazar was our programme today!!!
nice weather, beautiful fall and the fruits, ey gosh.. soooo yummy still in this season!!!!! I noticed flags in black and green, ipue told me, this is a sign, the mourning months are no longer far and ppl are preparing them for!!


but believe it, the most beautiful fall colours we have in ipue's own yard!!!!!! do you agree??

here you can see me in ipue's street.

Posted Nov 13, 2013, 4:39 pm
today yashila_81 and lili_6789 proposed a day out to ipuenktchen & her hubby, and so they did, got up at 7, leaving at 8 AM - first stop at SOFIYAN, we took breakfast at the park; there were nobody else!!!!! it was nice!!!! then we turned to the other side of the road and went into *nowhere*!!!?! it was so interesting, as ipue told me the landscape and nature changed immediately, it seems her like a desert, a salt desert - well, we are not so far from the urmia lake (salt lake) and beside the dam there it looks like here to QUM TAPPEH!!!! and had you ever seen such a plain landscape without any mountains?????????????????? in IR it's soooooooooo rare!!!!!



untill now yashila_81 didn't told anything to them, it should be a surprise... the vegetation got more and more desert-like!! sand everywhere and 1 or 2 kind of special plants, only to be found in deserts... suddenly a crowd of large wild dogs!!!!! they worried about us.. and later some shephards and a large sheep flock!!!!!


it was marchy, too, and for that reason unfortunately we couldn't get clother to the desert, it was too dangerous as they had a lot of rain during the night!! A pity.. some hills with real desert design, made by the wind... as you know from deserts!! later ipue remembered before she had seen photos in an exhibiton from this so called *kavire azerbaidjan*!!! doesn't matter - it was really a nice & unknown landscape!!!!


Posted Nov 13, 2013, 4:42 pm
then we made a turn to find the AMAND DAM not far from there!!!!!
and we found it very easy!!! perhaps you remember, in AMAND is the garden of one of ipue's hubby's bros - and it was her wish since longtime ago to see the dam, too!!!! a quite little one - and nearly EMPTY after 5 months without any rain!!!!!!!! but it was so beautiful there!! had you ever seen such a sky - great sunny weather, and so many ducks and geese!!!!! waiting to be feed with our bread... hehe....... they came from everywhere when they noticed us!!!!!!!!!





Posted Nov 13, 2013, 4:51 pm
back to tabriz yashila_81 and lili_6789 would like to see smth of TASUA, one of the mourning days with special programme to remember the martyrdom of hossein, the grandson of prophet mohammed. we went into the ancient part of tabriz and had a lot of *Tasua*!!! young or old, everybody went out to be with!!!! processions of black clothed kids, guys and men turning in a special way and lots of them with drums!!

GREAT CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!! :-))))))))))))

Posted Jan 22, 2014, 4:24 pm
still in tehran for the windows of ipue'son1 - the next adventure... as it should be started in the morning at 7 AM, but the truck arrived in the afternoon and the first window entered the flat at 4 PM!!!!!!!!!! they are just working hard and hopefully will be finished this eve!!!!!!!!!!
it was so interesting for me - I've never seen PVC-windows!!? and the weather was spring-like and we could pretty support the open windows - holes in the wall the whole day!! I'm so curious when we'll get back to tabriz!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!

yes, they worked so fast and now at 8 PM they finished the windows - but with a *but* like usual.... the factory only sent white silicon, but the windows are white only from inside, but brown from outside.. and they didn't sent brown silicon... so there is a reason we had to stay another night in tehran, waiting for the stuff in the morning to continue.............................................

next while looking for a dyeing mill we saw the ark, the ancient citadel, one of the oldest places of tabriz from 1.000 years ago, from backside.  and in the meantime we got hungry and spedially we TVs started to moan....... so we entered *Pizza2000* and each of us had a yummy food!! spaghetti with goulash and pizza with tongue and cheese!!

next we went to a famous nutshop and bought our nuts for the new year's visitors, the same some pastry..... ipue choose always a kind of pastry which is easy to keep for longer time, a wafer with a yummy peanut creme!

we asked some books from different bookshops, but didn't found what we were looking for... and so we have to go again downtown on SAT or SUN,.... because we need this as a gift!!! so pls stay tuned! bye for now!!!!!

hi, mom, at our 3rd day in rasht and after so long chilling our hosts decided to bring us out for a great trip around rasht, the capital of gilan province!!!! we went at an open air museum!! what a great idea!!!! country ppl from gilan dedicated their traditional wooden farm houses to the IR heritage - and they removed it from its place to rebuilt it again at the large museum area!!!!! and the next generations are able to see in which way their ancestors were living!!!! they also were showing lots of their handicrafts!!!!! you cannot imagine how interesting this had been for all of us!!!!!

Posted Mar 27, 2014, 1:23 am
hi, mom, today another the same interesting trip to a village area high in the mountains - for sure in northern iran they are not that mountains but better to say hills, covered by beautiful forest!!

pls have a look!!!!!

Posted Mar 28, 2014, 11:24 pm
hi, everybodyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
as it is the main goal of IR ppl to visit each other during the new year holidays, today it was ipue's turn to wait for guests!! and we were very excited what will happen....  the days before we saw she was busy to get nuts and cookies/ pastry and yesterday her son2 went to buy lots of fruits... and so on............... and when ppl are arriving you have to serve first the tea and cookies or pastry. later nuts and other sweets, and at last the fruits!!!!!!!! this is difficult coz they all don't arrive at the same time.. and you must not forget to whom you served whatever....

;) :o

as the place where ppl let their brandnew shoes is also very important for the ppl!!! and so I went to examinate them........


Posted Mar 31, 2014, 3:54 pm

the Azerbaijan Tourism Organization during the new year and summer holidays offers busses to have different sightseeing trips. and the meeting point is just nearby to ipue's home, so we met at 4 PM and started with a group of 10!!!

first we entered the seghatoleslam house, a house from olden times, and they offered for the tourists handicraft from different regions of this province! later we went to the ancient citadel ARK, an impressing old building from about 800 years ago in the middle of downtown!

from there we joined the constitution house, the meeting point of a kind of revolution about 100 years ago, with the sculptures of the famous local heroes sattar khan & bagher khan!

the last goal of this trip should be the laleh park mall, but nobody of our group was in the mood for shopping and so on, better we decided for an ice-cream - and so we did!!!! a nice and funny day!!!

later in the day the weather turned into a very stormy weather..
lucky Possy & Crossy, they were the only ones who had a shawl, coz it got really COLD!!!

believe it, there was a motorbike in the garden!!!!!!! and we all had been very
curious to whom it  belongs... it was the motorbike of the workman who was
busy there today!! and so we weren't allowed to have a ride....
but finally we got get a pic on the nice motorbike!!!!!!!!!!!

hi, dear traveltoyworld!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We passed the MON in ipue's garden and had a great day!!
as it's a bit colder there we had just the beginning of spring!
of course we all had a photosession!!! and most of all we liked
the poppies!!!!!!!

btw the lilac here in yusefabad is in a much more beautiful colour
than in tabriz although it's from the same plant.
I think it's a matter of soil......
