today we arrived at ARDABIL, lili's home town!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted May 11, 2013, 3:37 am
back home from ARDABIL ipue & her hubby got invited for *abgousht*, a traditional dish from this region and the favorite dish of ipue's hubby!! and sometimes lili_6789 cheers him up by preparing this!!!!!!
and so we had today!!!!!!!!!!!! but what happened today when they were arriving at lili's??????????? what a shame!!! I couldn't welcome them, but instead of taking a bath they put me in the washing machine!!!! how RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!? have you ever heard this??? instead of taking a bath or a shower to put somebody in the washing machine - how much pain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!! and into the bargain they hanged me on the clothesline to get dry!!!!!!!!!!!! it seems I have to be a bit careful at this home!!!!!!!!!!??!?!?!?! who knows what will happen next???????????!??!!?! - but honestly they are really kind ppl... perhaps they take their bath themselves also in the washing machine?!??!

and as RedRudiTehran came with ipue and he was so compassionate when he saw me on the clothesline, he ask to hang him up beside me so we could have a chat in the meantime........ what a nice guy!!!!!!

Posted May 11, 2013, 3:53 am

there had been about 50 guests, the bros & sis of ipue's hubby with their kids and grandchildren and so on....... and although there is no dinner it's a lot to prepare and to buy the days before.. even you have to modify the furnishing... well, who has 50 chairs at hand...??? and also you have to think for 60 - 70 plates, tea glasses, cutlery and so on!!!!! you have to go to fruit bazar and buy tons of fruits, tons of nuts, sunflower seeds and others.. it isn't an easy job!!!!!

and when the guests arrived the hosts have to work hard!!!! every moment tea must be ready and served permanent!!!!!! to serve pastry, cookies, sweets... the fruits and nuts are ready on each table. cleaning the dishes all the time - and and and and............... and don't forget to clean the plates very often!!! ;-)))

I had much fun this eve as I had a nice chat with a cute russian wooden doll!!!!!!!!

at the end of the party ipuenktchen took me with her, because we'll leave all together from ipue's home!!!!!!

Posted Jun 7, 2013, 1:42 pm
before leaving ipue told us to take a bath!!!!!!!!!!!! and how rude!! she met me in the washing-machine!!!!! ey  gosh................. poor LeilaParAvion had to take her bath even in the dish-washer...!!!!!!!!! could you ever believe it????? and for getting dry she met me on the clothes-line -  as I had this once at lili's, too!!!!

today we'll have our toyvoyager-goodbye-party!!!!!!!

Posted Aug 8, 2013, 9:50 pm

by train straight to mashhad!!!! boah, how far from tabriz is mashhad situated!!!!

different language institutes.

Posted Nov 7, 2013, 5:24 pm
today was the great moment we went for the pilgrimage site - the holy district. in the part with golden minarets
and dome is the tomb of Emam Reza! here you can see me at the entry!

Posted Nov 7, 2013, 7:38 pm
during the whole night we had been on the train from mashhad to esfahan crossing the desert, but what a pity,
we couldn't see anything, because it was still dark....


today we had some sightseeing in Esfahan (after visiting some language-institutes!!) and here you see me
at the ancient khaju-bridge! unfortunately the river zayanderud has no more water.., they told me! such a pity!

later in a park lili made this sign behind me while yasha was taking a pic... I don't know the meaning...
do you know it?????????


but the flowers were really magnificent - pls have a look!!!!! I was so thrilled!!
btw it was raining in esfahan and we got pretty wet....

here you can see me in front of the hafez mausoleum!

in the afternoon by train we went back to esfahan after visiting some language-institutes.

Posted Nov 7, 2013, 7:58 pm

hi, mom & dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
today ipue proposed a shopping tour and so we did!!!!
boah... what a crowd!!!! like in DE in the last days before X-mas!!!!!?!?! but nevertheless we did our tour and here and there we saw interesting things - for instance the protestant church, in it's yard had been the elementary school of son1 of ipue!!! in front of the church yard is now a new street with an entrance (one you may see on the pic!) at both sides for an underground multi-storey car park!!! when you come like ipue & her hubby not that often downtown you can find every time such *new things*!!! ;-)

next while looking for a dyeing mill we saw the ark, the ancient citadel, one of the oldest places of tabriz from 1.000 years ago, from backside.  and in the meantime we got hungry and spedially we TVs started to moan....... so we entered *Pizza2000* and each of us had a yummy food!! spaghetti with goulash and pizza with tongue and cheese!!

next we went to a famous nutshop and bought our nuts for the new year's visitors, the same some pastry..... ipue choose always a kind of pastry which is easy to keep for longer time, a wafer with a yummy peanut creme!

we asked some books from different bookshops, but didn't found what we were looking for... and so we have to go again downtown on SAT or SUN,.... because we need this as a gift!!! so pls stay tuned! bye for now!!!!!

I miss you - lots of kisses, love, JORIS

Posted Mar 16, 2014, 11:00 pm
hey, dear mom!!!!

puuuuh... nice sunshine, mom, but a strong spring storm!!! and  I understand, it was so difficult for my grandmom ipuenktchen nobody fo us got lost... specially Possy & Crossy both together with a weight of only 25 g could be taken with by the wind....................

but all's well that ends well. and we arrived back home safely!!!!!!!!!!!!

first we passed the Union Bridge while going downtown!

this time we found a path to see the ancient citadel from nearby, they are still working there and the wall around was destroyed in the meantime! to was after nearly 30 years ago for the first time ppl could see it from nearby again!

from there we went by taxi to the new built mansour cross rd with its silk road tower and the carpet mosaic downstairs in the yard!! boah, mom, such a large and beautiful mosaic!!!!
and from there we took the bus straight home and everybody got really tired!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish you could be here, dear mom!! miss you & kiss you, mom!!

Posted Mar 18, 2014, 9:34 am
hi, dear mom and helloooooooooooo, everybodyyyyyyy and a special hello to K-town!!!!!!!!!

ipuenktchen had a surprise for us, we had dinner very soon coz at 8.15 PM local time in DE we promised to keep our fingers crossed for the football match 1. FC KAISERSLAUTERN ./. 1. FC KOELN!!!!! 2nd bundesliga... it's because of our dear BETZE, a HUUUUUUGE FAN of 1. FCK, and ipue has a fan-shawl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Possy & Crossy met even their fain-tricot and fan-shawl, too!! and because it was a very important match we were ready in time in front of the live-ticker!!! boah, it's sooooooooooooooooooooooo exciting.. now it's the break between first and second half with a result of 0:0.......!?!!

pls stay tuned, we had to be back now at the live-ticker!! see you soon!!! and hopefully with GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!

nooooo....... we are deeply sorry.... perhaps our fingers are too small to get a result when keeping crossed!!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!??!?!?!?!? coz they finished the second half still with 0:0 when the final whistle was coming and the points are gone to cologne................. :-((((((((

Posted Mar 18, 2014, 10:06 am
hellooooooooo, dear mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so we had been with friends and we jumped over the fire!!!!!!!!!!!!

from there I went home together with my mom & dad because tomorrow we'll go for a little holidays.. stay tuned, dear friends!!!!

Posted Mar 19, 2014, 2:30 am
hey dear mom & dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
as you are leaving today for ardabil and you like to take me with you, for sure I was so thrilled about!! but as I didn't agree to come alone I had spoken with dear little ZIZZI_Zebra to come with me, I got so happy she agreed and immediately we had a meetup with ipuenktchen  to get the allowance for her to go with me!!!!!!!!!! it was so kind of ipue, even when we have NEW YEAR holidays and all moms and dads like to be with their kids......

thank you, dear ipue, and also for the great time I had at your's!!!!!!!!!

Posted Mar 27, 2014, 10:16 am
hi, mom & dad, thank you so much for the great trip we had together!!!!

the joy to meet my buddies again was gigantic; when we arrived back home from northern iran, rasht, and ardabil - we went straight to ipue's, because everybody eagerly would like to see his buddy again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and so we had a great eve, chatting and looking at the pics and to hear what ipue has done in the meantime!!!!!

ey gosh, and at the end of the eve we all had a jump into the washing mashine.. as ipue told us, we'll have guests on FRI and we had to be clean again!!! mom, how RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we all were crying, but ipue shut the door and the water comes on and we were thinking it was the last day of our life, honestly, mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well, now we are clean and ipue agrees.....
and this is where we are NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hanging on the line...

Posted Mar 28, 2014, 11:17 pm
hi, mom & dad,
as it is the main goal of IR ppl to visit each other during the new year holidays, today it was ipue's turn to wait for guests!! and we were very excited what will happen....  the days before we saw she was busy to get nuts and cookies/ pastry and yesterday her son2 went to buy lots of fruits... and so on............... and when ppl are arriving you have to serve first the tea and cookies or pastry. later nuts and other sweets, and at last the fruits!!!!!!!! this is difficult coz they all don't arrive at the same time.. and you must not forget to whom you served whatever....

;) :o

and, my dear followers, I'll let you know, tomorrow when yashila_81 and lili_6789 will go back home I decided to come with them because I need a break and I missed home so much, and I'd like to have a look around if my toys and everything is still at its place!!!!?!?!

Posted Mar 29, 2014, 7:38 pm
hi, everybodyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

today another the same interesting trip to a village area high in the mountains - for sure in northern iran they are not that mountains but better to say hills, covered by beautiful forest!!

when arrived at the recreation area we took a suite for some hours in a kind of motel and started to cook smth for lunch - means we were cooking for our hosts!! when coming outside again the fog got much more, nearly we wouldn't be able to drive the car down the hills....
how exciting!!! pls have a look!!!!!

Posted Mar 29, 2014, 7:44 pm
at our 3rd day in rasht and after so long chilling our hosts decided to bring us out for a great trip around rasht, the capital of gilan province!!!! we went at an open air museum!! what a great idea!!!! country ppl from gilan dedicated their traditional wooden farm houses to the IR heritage - and they removed it from its place to rebuilt it again at the large museum area!!!!! and the next human generations will be able to see in which way their ancestors were living!!!! they also were showing lots of their handicrafts!!!!! and you can buy bread and other things, just made there!!! you cannot imagine how interesting this had been for all of us!!!!!

Posted Mar 29, 2014, 8:09 pm

hellooooooooo, everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got really thrilled when I understood at the moment of the turning of the year from 1392 into 1393 in the eve at about 8.30 PM we'll be at my grandmom's together with my buddy F.M.Bear!!! it was so mystic and full of harmony for me, when we admired the HAFTSIN there!!! and

it was sooooo great! even not such a crowd as they told us, normally is very common there...... it was announced the weather will be quite bad, and so most ppl prefered to stay at home, although it's FRI today, the day ppl are free in moslemic countries.

later we had a nice lunch at home and in the afternoon mom & dad went back home, and ipue picked me up for the international trade fair, there was the last day of an exhibition of flowers & plants!!!!!

hi, dear mom!!!
you went to ardabil together with the kids to see your mom & dad and so it's ok I'm still with ipuenktchen!!!

sometimes a bad thing brings a good thing for us, and so it happened today, when ipue's TV got out of order and it was a boring FRI for mr. ipue..... and so ipue proposed to have a walk in shahgoli park beside their neighbourhood, as she hadn't see yet all the thousands of tulips everybody is talking of!!!!!!!!?!?!?
and so we did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

woooooooooooooooow, so beautiful colours... we forgot all the crowd there, while admiring the great tulips in so many different colours!!!!!! have you ever seen so many tulips in one place?????

hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, dear mom!!!

believe it - today there was a young guy with a funny motorbike on his way to India and Australia...... wooooooow!!!!!!!!!!! and we all traveltoys were sooooooo curious to have a ride with... but no chance, only in the yard... ipue told us: *too dangerous*!!!!!!!

wish him a great & safe trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and kiss you, mom, miss you, mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi, deeeeeeeeeeearest mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
believe it what happened today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??!?!

we all got thrilled when the postman brought the parcel vom china and we saw, POSSY & CROSSY made it safely back home!!!!!! although I hadn't seen them before, coz they left home in the same time, when I joined it!!! I understood it was really a historical day at ipue's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and imagine, they came back home with new friends!!????!?!?????? yeaaaaaaaaaaah, there was the pink bear and a playmo-child with him.. we are very curious how they will be named later!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!?! and for sure we all will be a cool gang!!!!!!!!!!

and a warm WELCOME for the cosy STRAWBERRY-Bear came to IR as a guest and we like to host him to cheer up dear papa_always!!!!!!!

hi, dear mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
while you were on your way back home from ardabil we had a cute surprise........... ipue-oma found at instagram the advertising for a great flower-exhibition nearby - and most of all we got surprised by three beautiful flamingos!!!!!!!!!! so it seems we can be hopeful for the urmia-lake again!!!!!! about it's drying and it's nature and last but not least about the flamingos and other birds..........

and the next surprise when coming out in front of the exhibition we found a brilliant classic car, a wonderful chevrolet from olden times!!!

miss you, mom, hope to see you soooooooooooon!!!! kiss you, mom!!!!

hi, dear mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

today we had a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in the morning we went out, coz it's the international museum's day and all museums in IR are for free!! so ipue and Mr. ipue decided to went to the qajar-museum. the new yard is opened recently and very large!!!!!! it was full of tulips as ppl told us, but now finished the tulips, but it was a very beautiful area as well!!!!

the qajar museum is also an ancient traditional mansion of tabriz and so beautiful with its coloured stoned glass windows!!

when finished our excursion we went to my home, invited by my dear mom & dad for a yummy lunch and of course to see them all, specially the cute little kia and miss viona!!!!!!!!!!!! and finally I decided to stay at home, coz haven't been there since a long time!! and so I kissed my dear buddy strawberrybear goodbye!!!!!!

thank you, dear ipue-oma & see you soon again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
