Now, where to get a healthy lunch in Shiraz?....Off to search for a good place to get a Shirazi Salad...
Big place...looks like what the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs) might look like in the year 2525...
Found the perfect place...Cafe Forough
Salad-e shirazi is a summertime favorite in Iran. Finely chopped tomatoes and cucumbers mixed with spices and lime juice make salad-e shirazi a hit.
Après le déjeuner a lovely walk through the nearby Jahan Nama Garden
This large walled garden has existed since at least the 13th century CE. Much of the present design may be 18th century. In a classic Persian garden arrangement, four broad avenues, bordered with orange trees, cypresses and roses converge on an octagonal stone pavilion at the centre.
And of course, a stop in the garden's coffee shop for an afternoon pick-me-up....

If you are here or planning to visit here beware of this kind of thing on the roads here...happens quite often, imo. Just beware of the oncoming traffic at all times...especially at night or on the weekends in general. There are a lot of drunks on the roads here. Be particularly alert to the oncoming southbound traffic when returning from the National Park at night towards the north to the resorts. I also suggest you gas up and eat so you can avoid stopping in the Ka'u area. Very rough around the edges. Eat at Volcano village or stop in Captain Cook. There is virtually little police protection in the Ka'u district between the park and the South Kona district. The roads are very curvy and dangerous without lighting and very little shoulders. Cell service is spotty also. You are pretty much on your own in an area often referred to as "The Wild West".

DON'T WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS CARBON CREDITS VISITING THE THUG-OCRACY OF HAWAI'I
This is just like the Ocean View/Ka'u Ghetto Town Council!! At first, I thought they had used them for stand-ins but the real Iranians are far gentler and kinder, and Happy looking!
The ones here look like zombies walking in the vog over cemeteries.
Shāh Chérāgh (Persian: شاه چراغ) is a funerary monument and mosque in Shiraz, Iran, housing the tomb of the brothers Ahmad and Muhammad, sons of Mūsā al-Kādhim and brothers of ‘Alī ar-Ridhā. The two took refuge in the city during the Abbasid persecution of Shia Muslims.
