Nooshabad underground city

April 17, 2012

More than 500 years ago when Mongols started an attack to Iran, people in Nooshabad (a small city near Kashan, Iran) dug a series of tunnels under the city! They used it to supply food, water and any other life infrastructures during attack with out the need of going out of houses!
Many houses had an intrans to the underground web!! You cand find some water and food stores there.
If I’m right they were as deep as 70 meters a little more or less, they are actually grate to see!!
I was there last summer in a travel to center of Iran (Kashan, Chadegan, Abyaneh, …), if you like I can add my other stories too!!
you can see a clip of that in my YouTube and here are some pictures also:


Oil well

March 29, 2012

Just near Kazeroon, Fars, Iran you can find an oil well!! My father told me that it was drilled when he was just a child but it doesn’t worth to extract oil from there because that’s a heavy crude oil supply and of course the amount is not large enough. But I think private sector in future can continue the program. Now that’s sealed and not so far from the city.
I don’t know any more detail about that and could not find it in internet also!!!

The region around the oil well has an awesome nature specially in spring I can compare there with heaven. When I go there, When I breathe the air I feel a kind of mysteriousness I don’t know why!!!

Again the old conflict industry an nature I also just like many other people love both, I’m going to be an engineer for rest of my life, I love cars, planes, even I love war crafts but …!!
Not too far from the oil well you can find some other small workplaces and they use mountain’s rocks to produce construction materials. I can see the effect so now imagine what would that heaven be when huge oil industries go there!!

I don’t know!

Kish island

March 13, 2012

In January I had a solo 2 day travel to Kish island to take TOEFL exam. Kish is a beautiful reef island in Persian Gulf!! I have traveled to some places in the world such as Malaysia, Turkey, Russia, … and now I can say Kish is one of the most beautiful places in the world!!!

Humid and hot weather of the island in nearly 3 seasons of the year caused the oeople to wake up too late there but I didn’t do that I woke up at 5:45 AM and went to the beach! Almost no one was there, even I could just hardly find some body to take me some pictures . In the time of my travel the weather was cool but that was too humid as when I wanted to take a pic and took my iPhone out of my pocket in a second that was covered with dew!!

After some time in beach I walked to one of the island’s beautiful shopping centers to buy an action man for my little cousin and some thing for my brother, finally I did!! I bought a small 3ch indoor RC heli for my brother!

That day I had an apple pie and ice coffee for my breakfast then a large hamburger for lunch I also bought some clothes as Kish is a free trade zone with out any import taxes and etc.

next day I took TOEFL in Kish international university now I know that I passed it but at the moment I had some kind of stress but anyway just after the test I went to the sports wharf (if I’m translating true from original Persian word) and rented a bicycle to start a 2 hour journey around the island! That was great I will return there to do it again! This time I’ll finish the island’s coastal bicycle road!!

Coastal bicycle road

I flew back to Shiraz later that night but as I said I’m sure I’ll go back there again!! It’s an awesome place for scuba diving and other sea sports. I originally come from a port city of Persian gulf named Bushehr but the waters are 100 times more beautiful in Kish, maybe that’s because of reefs!!!

Derak mountain

March 10, 2012

last Friday I and two of my best friends had a half a day mountain climbing in Derak mountain, Shiraz, Iran. We went not too early just at 6:30 am, that was my first time in this mountains! As Armin and Maziar are sportsmen I can say they were running up and I was with them too so …!!

We climbed through a beautiful valley that I think if the weather changed to rainy we would be all dead but you could not see even one part of cloud in the sky …

We went further for nearly 2 hours then stayed to have a breakfast! After eating; our coming down was so different from professional climbers! we were almost skying on the slope! Anyway although that was dangerous, I personally would like to do it again!

have fun

Here are two pictures:
