Bazaar Bazorg (trans: The Big Bazaar) Tehran, Iran. I went there with my jewelry-making class to buy old silverware to melt down for our lost-wax casting projects. It was an amazing experience I will never forget and I hope to go back some day when the political atmosphere has shifted and the country is, once more, officially friendlier to Westerners (the people themselves are already quite lovely, it's the government that could cause issues for travelers).
Persepolis (Old Persian Pārsa, Takht-e Jamshid or Chehel Minar) was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550-330 BCE). Persepolis is situated 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in the Fars Province of modern Iran. In contemporary Persian, the site is known as Takht-e Jamshid (Throne of Jamshid). The earliest remains of Persepolis date from around 515 BCE. To the ancient Persians, the city was known as Pārsa, which means "The City of Persians".
Marji's family members are her father, mother, and her. As Marji begins to be more interested and mature enough to understand the problems that her country is facing, her family supports her by taking her word and opinion in a serious matter. Her parents love her too much that they send her away from Iran because they want to protect her. I chose this image because it represents how members of a certain family unite and they all participate to their same beliefs.
