Last Afternoon In Shiraz … Lunch With My Family …

In the afternoon of my last day in Shiraz we all had lunch together at my Grandparents … I helped my grandmother get the food ready and listened as my grandparents talked to each other … it was rather amusing actually listening to their conversation … talking with each other in a way that only two people who have spent so much time together can …

My cousins arrived and joined us for food … lunch was a particular favourite dish of mine … Khoresht Kangar … which is basically a stew made with Lamb and a vegetable from the same family as the Artichoke called a Cardoon … it only grows in very specific conditions … i.e. warm dry regions so Shiraz is perfect for this …

Thats almost it for the posts about my trip to Iran … just a couple more to go …

Till next time …
