Not many words or photos but Persepolis is historically significant enough to get it's own entry.

We were lucky, our guides had arranged for one of the previous archaeologists to give us a tour. Not only was he knowledgeable but he was also an interesting, lively, rebellious old boy who had no hesitation in sharing with us his stories of wine drinking and hunting and eating wild boar. I guess when you get into your 80's you can afford to be a bit less cautious.

The ruins themselves show how advanced the technologies of the ancient Persians were with running water, sewage treatment and precise construction methods.

It was an amazing feeling to walk through such a historic place.
