it was sooooo great! even not such a crowd as they told us, normally is very common there...... it was announced the weather will be quite bad, and so most ppl prefered to stay at home, although it's FRI today, the day ppl are free in moslemic countries.

later we had a nice lunch at home and in the afternoon ipue's son1 and his family went back home, and ipue went with my TVbuddies to  the international trade fair, there was the last day of an exhibition of flowers & plants!!!!! but in the meantime the weather changed into the announced sandstorm and it was a bit strange there on the hill outside of tabriz!!! so lucky me, I stood at home!!!!!

I got completely surprised when ipue-mom waked me up in the 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 well 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 they all took the car to get back via meshkin to tabriz, arrived at 9 PM - enormous tired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but soooo proud to get successfull!!!!

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

HELLOOOOOOOOOOO, dear traveltoys!!!!

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......

and long time ago he belonged to ipue's sons!! ipue loved him so much all the time and was always so sad she couldn't find him... although she was looking around all the stuff since ages!!!!!!! when she heard KiVi speaking about him, she immediately asked them and understood, he lives with them in their room!!!!!!! oh gosh, ipue was sooooo excited and asked the cute lil kiddies, if they would let him come to her and live here, as she loves him since such a long time, and of course they accepted immediately, sweet kiddies!!!!
she was so thankful and the other day they brought him with them and ipue was sooooooooo happy, you cannot imagine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and as she isn't able to open a travel-diary for Monchichi he stay with dear strawberrybear, and come with him  whenever he likes!!!!!!!!!! yeeeeeaaaaahhhhh!!!!!
