Second trip to Iran by HelenBachari on 27 October 2013 4:12am
After spending 3 wonderful weeks in Iran in 2011, I had was thrilled to be able to go back there for 4 weeks recently.

I revisited many places from the first trip - Tehran (of course), Hamedan, Zanjan, Tabriz, Shiraz, Yazd and Isfahan. But I also got to visit Ahwaz, Shush, Shustar and Bushher in the south west of the country.
I caught up with several people I met during my 2011 visit and my very special family in Tehran loaned me a mobile phone so that I could keep in touch with them and other friends throughout my travels.
I've started uploading some of my photos to Flickr - please feel free to have a look. http://www.flickr.com/photos/helen55/sets/72157636817910985/

Stunning, especially the one of the older lady dressed in black with the traffic flashing past her. Really lovely.

I agree that the photos are excellent. You should ask Mr P if you can take over from Basil Pao on his next escapade!

Thank you for the kind comments about the photos.
I'd like to go back to Iran for a third visit ... a semi private tour instead of a big group. It's not easy getting good photos when you visit big attractions with lots of people in the middle of the day. I've got more "people" pics in a Facebook album: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151798833028778.1073741828.680973777&type=1&l=0428e6114e

Ps I think Basil's job is safe ;-)
