Traveling Mind

For a wonderful review of three cities: Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Venice, see Moon Free of Shadows. Lots of sage words that might scape the travel guides.

Persopolis, the Takht-e Jamshid

Last night, I uploaded to Flickr a few dozen photographs of a 2003 visit to Persopolis, near Shiraz, Iran.

The Persians call the place Takht-e Jamshid (the citadel of Jamshid). Persopolis is the Greek name. It actually does exist even though it was burnt down more than 2000 years ago.

You can access the whole set here and view it as a slide show here.
