Firdaus.

(Cornwall, United Kingdom – July 13, 2016)

Of all the places that I have been, no places has captured my imagination as much as Cornwall did. Reminded me of a Farsi couplet written by Amir Khusrau, written sometime around the 13th-14th century –

Agar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast,
Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast.

(English:If there is a paradise on earth,
It is this, it is this, it is this)
