Yes, I know it’s been an awfully long time since I’ve last updated and I can’t really promise that the next post(s) will come shortly. I have half a dozen of unfinished posts waiting in the drafts section and half a thousand ideas lurking in my head, but no time to do much with the either group. It’s not a good thing not to have time to write, but on the other hand it is a good thing to have more important things to do in your life than writing a blog for a handful of readers.
In other news, if you happen to visit Kashan be sure not to miss the Handicraft Workshop on Molla Fathollah St. (go along the Alavi St. – the main street all the ‘traditional houses’ are accessed from – in the direction of city walls and turn left on the roundabout). It’s well-worth visiting and the people working the are extra nice. While we are at it – English-language guidebooks to Esfahan (and environs incl. Kashan) and Fars province (Shiraz at al.) published by Rowzaneh are much more detailed than Lonely Planet. You can buy them at Shahr-e Ketab bookstores in Tehran.
