Bazaar Vakil … First Couple Days In Shiraz …

At the halfway point of my trip I caught a flight down to Shiraz in the south of the country to spend a few days with my Dad’s family … the morning of my flight was pretty relaxed … and I got to airport all ok with plenty of time to catch my flight … my Auntie Mitra and cousin Ali came to pick me up from the airport and we spent most of that afternoon at my Grandparents home …

The next day I went with my Aunt Mitra to the main Bazaar in Shiraz known as Bazaar-e-Vakil … we went for a general wander around and even bumped into some of my Dad’s extended family by chance while we were there which was a nice surprise …

Anyways thats it for this post … stay tuned for some more updates …

Till next time …
