    When ya gotta tea, ya gotta tea!

    I’d be afraid of someone running into one of the parked vehicles.

    🙂 They look as if they are sitting in a garden! The art of ignoring the context!

    Art of ignoring context indeed, love the incongruity. Almost imagine that rug will become a magic flying carpet and take off 😀

    Btw, I just discovered there is a Persian shop on the way to work (about fifteen minutes away from where I love) called Shahyad Supermarket. I’ve been in there for coffee and they sell music, movies, Persian products, groceries etc. I’ll have to take a photo for you.

    (Laugh) excuse the typo – “from where I live

    The flying carpet! exactly the image! Cute “lapsus”. If they sell music, I recommend you to buy some kurd music. There is a group of 7 or 8 siters and brothers, the Kamkar. I think you would like it. I would be glad to post a picture of this Australian-Iranian shop 🙂

    Great, thanks for the recommendation! I’ll ask for Kamkar then, shall I? Is it Kurdish folk music?

  7. homeyra said, on December 7, 2006 at 9:41 pm

    Yes it is. Kurdistan is also a home to many dervishes and they use music in their ceremonies. You have to try at least once, maybe you’ll like it.

    Homeyra, recommend Alizadeh too!

    From my experience, no ear can go wrong with Alizadeh! (Ney Nava, most importantly) (Raz-e No and Mastan Salamat Mikonand (this is not by alizadeh) are among ‘favorites’ here too!

    Here you go PPGG, you’ll have to buy the whole store! 🙂

    😀 Now that’s what I call good cultural exchange! Thanks for the recommendation Naj, I’ll ask them if they have Alizadeh as well then. I’ll try not to buy too much at once and will let you know about my shopping adventure 😉

    Thanks Homeyra for what you and BlueBear wrote on the World Orgasm Day post. We are urgently need of a global consciousness shift, to be sure. Its all in the cause of world peace and quantum science! 😉

    🙂 Seems a moral obligation then!

  12. peoplesgeography said, on December 10, 2006 at 9:10 am

    (Blush) yes it does — like parents telling you to hurry up and have babies. 😉

    I was going to suggest a magic carpet, but was afraid of being offensive.
    I guess I was mistaken.
    A victim of trying to be “Culturally Correct”.
    LOL 🙂

    I so like Bluebear’s rug-ged sense of humour 😉

  15. homeyra said, on December 11, 2006 at 5:58 am

    🙂
    Do not worry BB2, it is fun to be culturally incorrect!! See the Xmas post and the outcome of misplaced correctness! … but as the wise PPGG suggested we must not waste our energy till 22th 🙂

  16. Bluebear2 said, on December 12, 2006 at 4:10 am

    Well I feel better now, thought I had made a big foie gras!

    Wait a minute – that’s goose liver,

    I mean faux pas. 😉 8)
