Here are some more shots of Iran. Enjoy.
The magnificent walls of the Ali Qapu Palace in Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Esfahan.
The ceiling of the outdoor patio of Ali Qapu Palace in Esfahan.
Chris enjoying a break on the Palace patio. Esfahan, Iran.
I love the detail. Here is an example of the excellent craftsmanship in the Palace. Esfahan, Iran.
This mosque is found in Naqsh-e Jahan SquareÂ in Esfahan. Back in the day only women could worship inside.
Chris wanted to take the picture from the perfect angle, but his guy beat him to it.
Laura trying her best to help keep the historical fort of Shiraz from falling.
Checkout the mannequins of Shiraz. This wasn't even the best of them. Lots have real eye lashes, eye liner and hair styles ranging from the 1950's greaser to 1990's raver.
This lady befriended Chris and I on the bus from Yazd to Shiraz. She even gave me some hair clips and wanted a photo taken with me.
Here I am modeling the hair clip the lady gave me. Unfortunately it was so big it didn't fit in my bag (wink) so I had to leave it behind.
The courtyard of our hotel in Yazd, Iran. It cost ~$40 CAN/night.
Â Beautiful Yazd, Iran.
Have you ever seen such a huge meat rotisserie? This was in a place called 110 Burgers in Shiraz, Iran.
A typical Iranian hotel breakfast consists of a hard boiled egg, cream cheese, thin bread, jams and tea.
Here's proof that we have sent postcards to LOTS of people! This is only the batch of postcards we mailed from Iran. To date, we've sent postcards from Turkey, Italy, Morocco, Romania, Iran and Thailand. Hope you guys have enjoyed them! If you haven'tÂ receivedÂ one it's probably because I don't have your mailing address. All you gotta do is send it to me and a postcard will be coming your way.Â

Why would you go to a place like Iran where its leaders are crazed muslim lunatics who torture and imprison people and treat women like garbage? There are so many other wonderful places in the world to visit.

If you look at a few of our Iran posts, I think you’ll find a better answer to that than I can give here Jack. I encourage you to open your mind a bit to the greater realities of the world we live in. Yes, Iran is a Muslim theocracy. Yes they have put down legitimate democratic movements within their country and made some silly foreign posturing.
So has the USA.
But to write off the whole country for those reasons is ignorant and arrogant.
THat’s the biggest hunk of meat I’ve ever seen!!
If you have time send me a Thai postcard (always wanted to go there!)
Here’s my summer address:

Ah! Thanks Kelli. You gave me goose-bumps with your kind words. We can’t wait to see you guys too. We’re especially looking forward to the holidays and sleepovers when we take the four best kids in the world and you and Dean have a night on the town. 🙂 Ciao bella. -Laura-
Just got one of those lovely postcards. A beautiful surprise on a Monday morning. Also, I would like some of that giant meat. Mmmmmm. Looks delicious. I can see why Laura is so excited.
Can’t wait to see you both soon!

Glad to hear you got your postcard. And about the meat, what can I say? I think every good Albertan girl can’t resist a great piece of meat. Look forward to seeing you to Emily. love -Laura-
