Flat lands makes soft sholdiers, mountains tough soldiers


said Cyrus the great. These are the toughest people you would ever meet. We don't all want to be urbanized even though civilizations that invents comes from the settled society. But, I think it is nice to see the history in front of your eyes. In fact, I am on way to meet them soon. 


What sort of argument is that?

So let me get this straight, this guy is claiming that due to unforseen natural hazards, the migrants will evenutally turn towards urbanization?
but what about the natural hazards that have been occuring in that region for centuries? did any of those prevent the "eel" from migrating?

I think we need to look at these people with respect and not under the lens of "oh i wonder when theyll settle down and urbanize"

all this being said, good photographic work



In hope of a Free, Democratic, Independent and Secular Iran


Great photography and work....

Nomadic life at first glance seems such romantic setup, camping 24/7/365 but in reality life is tougher than that.

BTW, I am not speaking of personal experience, only guessing.  I know I like why shower and toilet in the house, especially at night or when it is really cold.

'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory
