Returning from Heidelberg, Germany (2005)

Why is this train from Heidelberg to Frankfurt so empty?

My dad used to have a couple of Heidelberg machines in a print shop he co-owned with a partner.

In December 2007, I saw one of these machines, from the 1950s, out of use but still standing, in a basement print shop in Kerman, Iran

Fruit Shake Stand

This is a fruit shake stand in Tehran. These types of fruit stands have existed far longer than any Jamba Juice. I remember them from 40 years ago. They always had great shakes. You just need to be careful to go to one that is busy with customers. There are a couple of good ones in the Sa'di square.
