Continuing to seek refuge in images and thoughts that look familiar......This is a picture of Rasht Bazaar--one of the most wonderful places in the world for me. Though I am not Rashti, as you know by now, I am a self-sanctioned "Honarary Rashti," having travelled there tens of times. I will write about it someday. The cheese shown on the left is called Siahmizgi cheese, which is sharp and dry and very delicious. Surprisingly enough, this picture and the ones in its series,were taken for Iranian.com by none other than one Hossein Derakhshan on a trip he took to Rasht in 2001!
