If you want to see clearly, you need to focus on realities.
Whose reality version do you accept? It is your decision.
All we know is: nothing as real as an experience with your own two open eyes to perceive wonders of universe. All we know is an edited, pseudo reality is the most dangerous thing that takes from you the stories you could find once in a life time and never forget, the stories of pure lifestyles and habits in which no media and money deception exist. Trust life as it is and choose it's exploration.

Isfahan.

Buying a rug in Iran is encouraged but its full of decisions. What type and style? How many knots? What region? Isfahani, Tabrizi or Kashani? Budget? Isfahan is considered by many to be the ideal place to get all the varieties in one place to make that decision. I didn't heed to this advice and was disappointed when I left Isfahan without a rug.

The one pictured is the inner dome design of the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque in Naqsh-e-Jahan. It's sublime and majestic. The owner gave me a price tab of 50k USD. Its pure silk.
So who wants a Persian rug?

Battles I: Thermopylae

King Leonidas I of Sparta and Themistocles of Athens, the two best generals of Greek poleis, made a plan to stop the Persians' invasion.
The Greek soldiers led by Leonidas would stop the Persians at the narrow pass of the Thermopylae, meanwhile the Greek fleet led by Themistocles would stop the Achaemenid fleet at Artemisium, another narrow zone.
The conformation of the two places made the Persians' numerical superiority useless, and the Achaemenid army had also logistic problems.
In Thermopylae, about 7.000 Greek hoplites (of which 300 men of the Spartan king's guard) faced between 70.000 and 300.000 Persians, trying to stop their advance.
They resisted, fighting courageously and killing many enemies, for two long days, and the Persians couldn't advance.
But a local man called Ephialtes told the Persians about a passage on the mountain nearby to get behind the Greek, so their position was lost, as they were surrounded.
Leonidas decided to stay at the pass, with his guard, a contingent of 700 Thespians and about 1.200 other Greeks, to cover the retreat of the others, letting about 3.000 hoplites to stay alive for other following battles in the war.
All of the remaining were killed, after fighting until death, but their sacrifice protected the pthers' lives.
About 4.000 hoplites, including Leonidas, were killed, while 20.000 Persians died, despite the victory. Since Themistocles' plan was to keep both Thermopylae and Artemisium, and the Greek fleet had suffered heavy losses, he retreated to Athens, that was evacuated, and stopped at Salamis, to prepare for the great battle.~Alexandros

سلام... أصفهان...🙏

Cerita dari Persia;
Iran tdk punya hubungan diplomatis dgn AS, Arab Saudi, dan Israel. Mereka musuh besar.
Baru tahu klo sebagian besar orang2 Iran benci dgn Arab, terlebih Arab Saudi, mereka menyebutnya negeri jahanam, terutama permainan politiknya yg kotor! Berbeda dgn orang2 Indo yg mengagungkan Saudi! Itulah sebabnya aq masih enggan pergi umrah atau hajji. Iran bilang, Saudi adalah pembuat ISIS, yang disupport oleh AS, Turki, dan negeri2 lain sekutunya. Pasti orang Indo tdk percaya kalo ISIS dibuat oleh Saudi.
.
Ketika Arab Suriah digempur, tapi yg membantu adalah Iran dan Rusia. Arab Palestina digempur, tapi yang ndukung malah orang2 Indonesia. Sesama negeri Arab, Arab Saudi dan negeri2 teluk lainnya tdk peduli.
.
Lebih ironis lagi, Indo tdk punya hubungan diplomatis dgn Israel, padahal Arab Saudi punya hubungan mesra dgn Israel dan merupakan sekutu AS. Kiblat Arab Saudi itu adalah AS! Huh ada banyak yg ingin aq utarakan, tapi aq takut klo nanti aq diserang barisan radikal scr tiba2..! Wkwkk.
.
Entah bgmn Shia dianggap ajaran sesat di Indo, aq yakin ini adalah ulah Arab radikal terutama Arab Saudi yg bermusuhan dgn Iran. Iran sebenarnya adalah negeri yang damai, tdk seperti berita2 international yg selalu menjelek2kan Iran. Yang membuat image Iran kurang bagus adalah Iran dikelilingi oleh negeri2 yg tidak aman seperti Irak, Afghanistan, Pakistan. Warganya suka membantu, ramah, aq bisa katakan bahwa orang2 Persia adalah salah satu orang teramah di dunia.

GUERRAS MÉDICAS. SALAMINA Y PLATEA.

Los griegos colocaron las naves corintias frente a la tercera formación persa y simularon querer salir por el estrecho entre Salamina y Psitalea. De esta manera consiguieron que las naves persas se adentraran cada vez más en el estrecho, perdiendo así movilidad por el gran número de barcos. Los atenienses cerraron en paso entre Salamina y la isla Psitalea y sus 3.000 hoplitas aniquilaron la guarnición persa en la isla. Desde lo alto, Jerjes veía como su flota comenzaba a huir y por este motivo hizo retirar todas las naves hacia el Helesponto y después a Asia.

En Grecia quedó Mardonio en Tesalia con un ejército de tropas selectas, mientras Jerjes suprimía las revueltas de su reino. El ejército griego estaba al mando del sobrino de Leonidas I, Pausanias, y estaba compuesto por lacedemonios, aliados de la Liga del Peloponeso, atenienses y platenses. Los persas tenían un mayor número de tropas y de calidad de caballería, pero los griegos los superaban ampliamente con sus hoplitas.

En el 479 a. C se enfrentaron ambos ejércitos y según Heródoto, solo sobrevivieron 3.000 persas, incluso Mardonio murió. La victoria se debía sobre todo a Pausanias y sus espartanos , no de los demás griegos, pero que por supuesto contribuyeron en este triunfo. Después de esta batalla, los ánimos subieron tanto que los griegos atacaron y asediaron hasta la rendición a Tebas, que había luchado del bando invasor.
