hey, everybody in the big wide world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

today was the most exciting day of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know from where to start to tell you, what happened!!!?!?!?

untill today I was quite hopeless hidden in ipue's cellar among any unneeded stuff........... but the same day when yashila_81 and lili_6789 came to ipue's house, and as yashila_81 and his dad got busy in the garage his mom got busy with lili_6789 in the cellar....

AND believe it,  WHAT DID THEY FOUND THERE????????????????!?!?!?!!???????????????!?!??!!!?
MEEEE - MEEEE - MEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I got sooooo happy to be given a real home again!!
and more than this I got thrilled when I met my sister ZIZZI_Zebra  just there!!!! and even when they told me about CHRISSI, who exactly looks like meeeeeeeeeee, and besides ZIZZI has in her life-missions to meet her, as she was so homesick because of my absence............... Oh what a glorious day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hey, everybody in the whole wide world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was so surprised when I heard 10 days ago they had still SNOW in tabriz!!?! (I never had seen snow in my life!!!?!) and so I asked to go out in the yard because it was a sunny day and it feels good after so long days downstairs in the cellar.... !!!! so we had a great photo-session and (you know, I'm a bit shy) I got real friend with Possy & Crossy and the guest Mr. F.M.Bear, as I heard who will leave soon...........

today it was my very first time in one of ipue's gatherings!!! we were allowed to have a glance at her collegues-gathering.. and as one of their oldest friends recently moved to tehran, even last gathering had been at her home before leaving tabriz... so they decided to give a souvenir from all her tabriz-friends to her.. well, it wasn't our taste, but ZIZZI told me, we have to look at this via IR-glasses, ppl here adore the IR-handmade-silver stuff!!!!!!!!!!! and so it was an excellent gift for her!!! pure silver!!!!!!!!!!!!

ipue asked me to learn about IR-money as I'm old enough to do some shopping sometimes!!! and next time when we are going to bazar I've to manage it for my own!!?! ey gosh, I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!

this wasn't that easy, coz they are using small and large coins for the same amount and you must look on very exactly not to make a mistake!!!!!!!! and for many coins are still the banknotes used, as well as the amount is very small nowadays...... and only the thousands-banknotes haven't still a coin not yet...
difficult, really difficult......................

although the weather was a bit stormy we had a ride downtown and noticed - believe it, tabriz is the host of the Asian Women Chess Games!!!

when we came out from the taxi there was a nice flower-basket and we would like to see it from nearby!

then first - yeah.. the post-office!! and what a surprise, they had STAMPS>>> hehe... mostly missing...  and so we were able to send out our postcrossing cards!! even we had been allowed to take a pic from a new stamp sheet, will be issued after one week!!

hi, my friends allover the big wide world!!!!!

today there was a funny programme, as ipue's son1 and schwieto invited their students for a touristic trip around their home town!!!! and for sure german speaking, each of us with a bottle of mineral water in their hands, like real german tourists!!!! hehehe.....

:D :p

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!!!

from chahar bagh we went again to bazar to admire the great *industrial monument* the ancient oil press!!!!!!!! really speechless!!!!!! but to take photos was too difficult.... we are so sorry!!!

from there again a glance at the bazar and another chilling out at the cosy cafe roozegar - and GOOD-BYE, ESFAHAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! back home to tabriz by bus, 12 and half hours on the road again!!!

on this beautiful Easter Monday.... the clock should been ringing at 9 AM,
but we only woke up at 11 AM... shame on us........... but dear yashila_81
was so kind to let us time to get ready untill noon... poooooohhhhh.....

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!!!!!!!!!!!

:cyclops:  what a pity.................

when yashila_81 had a break he had a shisha, too, and again we weren't
allowed to do the same..... but we had a pic together!!!!!!!

hellooooooooooo, dear friends, followers & buddies!!!!

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......
