Pansies are in bloom here for Spring.
Our group. The street trees are in full leaf along the way.
The greeness is influenced by a waterly atmosphere. Along the side of many roads a stream flows, from the melting snow of th snow melting snow on the mountains beyond the city. Even though the snow is easily seen, it had been in the high 70's to 80's in the city during our visit so far.
Our friend Brendan Mckay, from Australia, pointed out that here, the trees are most important. This wall was obviously built around the tree. No treess were destroyed to build this wall.
We passed one of the many small bakeries that dot the city.
Bread just out of the oven...is it sangak?
The neighborhoods varied on the walk, from simple and small business, to more formal residential. In the center is Willem, who knows the way. The mysterious women are not Iranian, in the front is Aart Blokhuis's wife Agi and Willem's wife, both from the Netherlands.
Trees leaning accompanied by flowers.
