UNDER THE OVERPASS IN IRAN
Submitted by Dorothy Thompson, Richland Center, Wisconsin

Great Travel Moment:
The people who hang out under bridges in Eşfahān, I noticed, are a different sort than those who typically hang out under bridges in the United States. Under the arches of the Khaju Bridge, people go to cool off, relax, and socialize. The Khaju Bridge, built in 1650, is one of a dozen beautiful, historic bridges in Eşfahān. Above the two stories of arches is a wide paved crossing, originally built for horse carts, and vaulted walkways along each side. Stone steps lead down to the Zayandeh River. Among the friendly people I met under this bridge was a young local man wearing an "I Love New York" cap. He was happy to meet an American. I was happy to meet an Iranian. We took photos of each other. We smiled.
