Shiraz … An Afternoon At The Bagh With Friends …

Whilst in Shiraz my cousin Ali had organised an afternoon at his family Bagh for us to get together with his friends … in Farsi a Bagh means garden … but alot of people who have a Bagh have one separate from their home … its almost like a mini orchard which may have a small room/building in the grounds as well … This Bagh has been in my cousin’s family for as long as I can remember … over the years it has changed alot and a few years ago they did concrete over alot of it … making it more practical for large gatherings and parties … the place is full of all sorts of fruit trees including, pomegranates, olives, almonds, oranges, etc … and has great views of the nearby mountains …
