My Trips to

I have been to Turkey a few times. Here are some pictures of my March 2006 trip there. We were a full busload of friends, travelling from Tehran to Istanbul, Antalya and Konya. Most pictures in this page are taken by Zeinab Salarvand.

View of the beautiful Mt. Ararat (Agri Dagh) helps you forget about the long boder formalities at Bazargan border post. Ali Parsa, Mostafa Azizi and one very friendly janitor from Turkey have posed for this photo.

Suleymanie Mosque


Our first night in Istanbul, one of my favorite cities. Suleymanie Camii, one of the city's magnificent mosques, built by Mimar Sinan.

There was a total solar eclipse happening in parts of Turkey in March 2006. We watched it near Konya. Here Hasti, her father Peyman, me and Zeinab are seen trying our eclipse goggles. (Photo: Shahram Moini)
