Masouleh – where roofs are streets
Isfahan – the capital of Persia
Toudeshk Cho – Life in the desert
Yazd – where conservatives meet liberals
Around Yazd – mud bricks and Zoroastrians
Tehran – modern life behind the scenes

Helsinki Samba Carnaval 2010

Helsinki Samba Carnaval celebrated its 20 year anniversary 2010. June 12, the rain was pouring down this abnormally cold and windy morning. Then, only an hour before the start of the parade, the sky opened up, bright sunlight filled the air and suddenly it was warm again. It brought out the smile on everyones’ face and the full colors of the appearance of these amazing dancers and costumes.
