Dear PK readers,

My deepest apologies for the long absense. I have a good excuse though for my lack of posting. The past couple of months were rather busy around here and we had plenty going on.  I have plenty to blog about as one of the happenings was a Persian Wedding.  The other was a month spent traveling through Bavaria (South Germany), Switzerland, and Italy.

munich-021-small2We landed in Munich on the evening of March 30th. We got up early the next morning still jetlaged but ready to take on the city.  As we were wandering through the streets we came about a whole block filled with all things Persian restaurants and markets. I was rather surprised to see that there were several Persian restaurants on a short city block.

Much to my dismay we were not able to take advantage of the wireless networks offered by our lodging establishment as somehow our laptop was not compatible and so I didn’t end up blogging because I really wanted to share the pictures along  with the stories.

I was rather surprised to see Farsi written in random store windows.  Much to my surprise the McDonald’s that sits just outside the old city walls had the words McDonald’s printed in Farsi and Russian above the window. On a couple of pharmacy windows I noticed the words “darookhaneh” printed in Farsi.  We didn’t try any of the Persian restaurants as we simply wanted to try all kinds of German food and couldn’t get enough of the Bavarian food and beer!

Sorry for the long absence. Posting is officially going back to regular schedule folks. Stay tuned for Asheh Anar.  😉
