hellooooooooooo worllllllllllllllld!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
today it was a great day for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we returned from boring years in the cellar of ipuenktchen's home back into the world!!!

ipue has some guests who will enter Mt. Sabalan, and as Possy & Crossy are absent, she had chosen us, Puenktchen & Anton, to escort them!!!!

what a great adventure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so ipue-mom waked us up in the very early morning and we took our backpack and went to the meeting point where two jeeps were waiting for us to go for the 3rd highest mountain in IR, the extincted volcano called sabalan, 4.811 m high, near ardabil!!!!

we had been a group of 8... and it was a hard job!!! we went by car to meshkin and started for hiking!! 5 h untill we reached the eastern mountain shelter at 3.500 m. what a crowd!!!!??!?! we hardly found a sleeping place in a new built house, still not ready.. slept very early at 8 PM to get up as early as possible at 3 AM and started to climb on the mountain!!!!!!!!!!! we reached it a 10 AM!!!!!!!!!!!! what a feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??!?! we got so happy although one of our mountaineer buddies couldn't support anymore and went back forward to the shelter at only 4.300 m, after taking pics of a very beautiful sunrising.....

the group of now only 7 mountaineer and 5 traveltoys (lili's sweet little red heart was coming with yashila_81) had a break at the peak, beside the lake, 50 m diameters and 15 m deep, took some photos beside the lake, and later went back to the shelter, arrived at 5 PM, and now we all took the car to get back via meshkin to tabriz, arrived at 9 PM - enormous tired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but soooo proud and happy to be successfull!!!!

(c) of the sabalan pics belongs to karfor, ankbod, yashila_81)

.......................for *E*S*F*A*H*A*N*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

great, great, great - a new destination for us!!!!!!!!!!!! and as ppl told us, the most beautiful city of IR!!! esfahan- nesfe jahan!! when you had seen esfahan, you had seen half of the world!!!!!!!! *smile*

we met ipue's younger son at the terminal in esfahan, coming from tabriz, and spent our time together!!!!!!!!!!! as it was to early to enter any office or shop we had a walk around the armenian cathedral of esfahan in the jolfa neighborhood to take our first pics!!!! *smile*

then we joined the OMIDAN BOOKSTORE, famous for books in foreign languages!!! yashila_81 got a client and ordered tons of books..... and ipue had a power-nap..

:( :) :cyclops:

while in the early morning we entered the favorite place *33 pol*, the 33-arcs-bridge, with was much more beautiful again as there was water in the river zayanderud, now we had a photo-session at khaju-bridge!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a glance in bazar and also a small art exhibition by azad university's master and students... and last but not least at the emam square, naghshe jahan!!!!!!! world heritage site!! and it's mosques around - here the entrance sheikh lotfollah mosque!!! not to miss to buy POSTCARDS for sure!!!!!!!!!! and finally the one and only **F**I**R**N**I** of hafez street!!!!!!! our main purpose to come to esfahan... hahahaaaaaaaa.... ipue told us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


later we met a friend who introduced us the cosy and nice CAFE ROOZEGAR!!!!! and we had a rest and nice chatting!!

for the eve of this remarkable day yashila_81 had another highlight for us!!!!


Posted Mar 1, 2016, 3:40 pm
hey, dear friends & followers!!!!
our 2nd day in esfahan started with a review of the beautiful yard of the *****hotel abbassi, a former carvansary... but what a pity, it wasn't like before, coz they were working at the teahouse and no service.......  for sure will be opened for norouz holidays!!!! - ok, no prob... instead of this we profitted from the beautiful toilet.. hehe...

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!!!

Posted Mar 1, 2016, 3:49 pm
heyyyyyyyyyyyy everyyyyyyyybodyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
we got sooooo thriiiiiiiiiiiiilled when ipue let us know the highlight for this eve!!!!!!!

had you ever heard about ZURKHANEH??????????????? the kind of traditional sports of IR???

hinterher hoerten wir, dass die esf ueberrascht waren, dass dort unter der woche etwas los war, weil naemlich alle vier zurkhanehs von esf in einer ecke liegen, so dass die paar leute, die sich dort an wochentagen hin verlaufen, dann auch noch auf vier verteilen und somit nix los ist..

oh sorry, forgot to speak english...  well normally ppl are going there on THU.. and so it was astonishing to meet some ppl there during the week.. but yashila_81 got really happy, as he took his special trousers with him and was ready to be busy!!!!!! and so the others did to honour their guest!!!!!!

it seems it's only tabriz not allow women to enter there, and so lucky ipue was so thrilled to see her son in this way!!!!!!!!!!!!! and possy, too!!!!!!!!!! great, great, great...

yashila_81 was so tired but content!! and on his way to the hotel he found the main shop who sells the best special t-shirts and bought one for his own - a great souvenir really!!!!!!!!!!!!

bye for now!!!!
