It is not very often that we have
been able to head out of
I had a meeting in the morning so we started off late and by the time we got there it was well past noon and we were all ready to have lunch. Vida and their daughter Rana and I went to gather some fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, tarragon, parsley, baby leeks, green peppers etc. from their vegetable gardens, while Jassem started the barbecue. We were able to have a lovely lunch, with freshly picked vegetables, fruits and herbs.
Jassem Ghazbanpour is a well known
Iranian photographer whose books of photographs of Iran are world famous,
especially his works in the three volume set “(February 2004). See also his photographs of the Women’s
Horse riding Competition in
Jassem and Vida told us that they have planted such variety and diverse type of flowers in their bagh that at anytime of the year when they go there, there are some flowers, even in winter they have edelweiss. They also told us that we could go there as often as we could, and we surely hope that it will not be long, another year, before we head there again, if our busy life will permit us to take time off. But we had a great time then and your places for sure were empty on that Friday.
