Anecdotes and oddities from abroad.

Just returned from exploring enigmatic Iran. Amazed by what I saw in this ancient land, from the “Mausoleum of the King of Light” to Chehel Sotun Palace. Stopped in Mahen to see the blue-tiled mausoleum of Shah Nematollah-e-Vali, a 14th-century Sufi Leader. Also visited the tomb of the Persian poet Hafez in Shiraz. And then there were the Iranian sweets, such as these delicious treats at Arg e rayen.
