Day 254: My name is Jumong

Nasir-ol-molk Mosque, Shiraz

“Jumong!” a little boy yelled with glee as I passed by. I smiled and walked on without a clue what he was referring to.

Then another, and another, greeted me with the same. “Jumong! Jumong!”

I couldn’t walk around Shiraz without being noticed and called “Jumong” or asked with a curious grin: “Jumong?”

Crumbling Sand Castles at Kaluts

Day 245: From Iraq to Iran

From Iraq to Iran : The Hamilton Road

Took the Hamilton Road from Arbil (Iraq) to Orumiye (Iran). Long ass journey for a short distance because most of it is on winding mountain road built by Kiwi engineer Archibald Hamilton from 1928-1932. Read about the spectacular scenery from LP and scenery did not disappoint. Sun baked mountains, lush blonde pastures (looking like they’ve been shampooed & conditioned), rich brown soil. Landscapes reminiscent of Bolivia – endless land and rippling mountains. Continued 繼續看…
