Beautiful Hungary, although I was flying romantically like a bird in your sky, but I have to leave. I'm different from other travelers, I don't travel to visit the places. I'm a migratory bird that can be destroyed if stay somewhere. I travel to countries for a long time, but Hungary was one of those countries I never liked to leave. You can not record the world on the camera, sometimes things can not be written, but the heart is a safe box to keep memories. A box that will never be lost. A special place in this box belongs to my Hungarian friends. A box which I left behind in Budapest, I'll be back some day to find it. I've packed my bag, and, with sadness in my heart, I have to say goodbye to my Hungarian friends and Hungary. I never forget how hard I tried to see my friends, and how hard I left Hungary. How much I hate these separations...

Here is the Elizabeth Lookout, the highest point in Budapest. A tower which you have to look down from, to see anywhere in Budapest. Hungarians who have seen many wars and oppressions during the history, when I was asking about the nationality they hate the most, the answer always was: "no one". On behalf of all the Hungarian people, I went to the Elizabeth Lookout to send the message "We Can Be Peaceful" to the whole world. The poster which the wind didn't let me hold it in my hands, so an American man who read the message, asked to help me. In the following, I must say that we Iranians and Americans love each other, I have some American friends who feel the same. The Iraqis who have made a parliament in Iran and introduced themselves as representatives of the Iranian people, a few days ago, they burnt the beautiful flag of the United States. To my American friends, I have to say that these are not Iranian, and no Iranian recognizes them. They are not representative of any Iranian people. They are just the Iraqis who conquered Iran (I will write about it). I pray for these people whom Satan has overcome them, to find the peace one day and I hope if God save them from this darkness.

Heart Disease To Leave Budapest

I have a heart disease, I always leave my heart in different countries. In the last nights of my travels, my heart is afraid that I might leave it somewhere again. Meanwhile, on the last night, I understand how to begin my exploration in that city, but it's always too late and I have to go. The migratory bird sometimes flutters as if it is flying off unlike its own desire. And I have to go, I have to close a suitcase full of memories, I have to say goodbye to this city soon, but not to my lovely friends, because I'm sure I'll meet them soon somewhere else in the world.

The history will never be lost. People are always seeking to repeat the history, nations and different religions are attacking each other. For decades, we have witnessed the sorrow and joy of different nationalities. In countries like Iran that have been defeated by the enemy for many years and conquered by them, we are seeing the sadness, and just on this page of the history and elsewhere in the world, its reverse is visible. Behind the smile of the Hungarian youth, I see the efforts of the heroes of this country. The heroes who have made many efforts to save the country, politicians who have made very difficult decisions. The Hungarian parliament has always stood behind its people and in the end, they defeated Russia and Germany.

I'm leaving his beautiful apartment, goodbye, I'll be back at 3 o'clock. Walking along the Danube River from Margaret Island. Although I don't know anywhere, but I've been lost for a long time. I don't care where I am in the world. The only thing I care about is the list of the songs I'm listening to. I'm so fond of walking at nights, and Budapest is so good for this. Nights are alive in Budapest. There are so many who do not like to sleep. I would like to walk all the night in the streets, get acquainted with new people in pubs, and take pictures in the city. I wanted to sit here for hours and listen to Frederick Chopin's "Nocturnes" album.

This world is a world of humans. A world that humans decided to destroy it. A world where its birds are falling from the sky every day is a world of war and violence. A world that we do not feel safe in it, a world that we are scared to die of hunger if we stay on its streets. A world where people are hardly getting close to each other, hardly talk to each other, hardly agree with each other. A world where birth means death, it is obvious that it must begin with crying. I felt from the beginning of my birthday that I traveled to a world that is not mine, a world where its everything looks strange to me. A world that we hardly face with it, a world full of fear and anxiety. A world where its humans behave in such a way as if they were of another kind of living creature, and they believe in the advent of man and Adam & Eve in their sacred books, the beliefs that says: "we are all one".

Girls like to hug in their childhood, the dolls were made for this. They want to talk to someone, so the dolls were made for this. Boys are the opposite, they like to be hugged in childhood, and when they grow up, both are reversed. Now, women like to be hugged, and men like to hug, and this conflict has always been beautiful for me and my camera. This photo was taken from a Danube River's bridge.

Travel To Iran: A Misunderstood Wonderland Behind the Stereotypes

In this post, I want to write about the mental conflicts and misconceptions about Persia's safety. Something that maybe every travel blogger has posted his/her personal experience on their blog. But after 4 years collecting the information and experiences of travelers, I'm writing this post. But how did I get to know other people's experiences? At first I knew that many people from outside had a completely wrong mentality about Iran, so they think they will not return alive if they travel to Iran. Even one day in Paris I met a man in a bar, when I told him I came from Iran, he said: "Don't you have a bomb?" of course that was a joke but this was a misconception about Iran. Sometimes I knew that the media had dragged the name of Iran here. That's why when I said the original and real name of Iran, "Persia", they would even be pleased to meet me. I just realized that a secret should be behind this, the secret that media should respond to. Actually I hate wars, not only wars, I hate the ice and distance between people. I read some books, some news, and most of all I chatted with the world, I found a lot of virtual friends from all of the world. Many nationalities had a very horrific image about Iran. And finally I realized that the media had a very bad effect on our minds. I wanted to fight against this stereotypes, against the distance between humans. I started inviting all my virtual friends to the place where I lived. Even those who I didn’t know. I did this for about a year, I saw how people are happy and match together! I became friend with people of different nationalities, and I can say that all nationalities can be peaceful.

The fact that we will die is not something we want to discuss about. It doesn't even matter who we were before we were born. Our main importance, is our life style when we are alive; and more importantly, what others think of us after our death. Even if we think about it, this is a bit of selfishness; in my opinion, the image that we want to leave after our death is not something that we can plan for, but at least it can be tried. These are the statues of the Hungarian kings, what did they do that people are staring at with interest in these sculptures? However, they can not be compared to the Middle East revolutionaries, because their statues are made for occupation and genocide throughout history.

We pass through many places every day, we see and hear a lot of things. And a man has something to say just as much as his age. In the last day of your life, you can only talk about what you have seen and heard in your life. But old rocks and objects that have seen and heard so many things for hundreds of years can have the same amount of things to say. Of course, if they have a language to express. For example, the statues of this beautiful architectural work, which are at the entrance to the Museum of Fine Arts in the Heroes' Square, have seen many things. Many historical and political events have been set up in this square and they all have witnessed those happenings.
