Au revoir Paris... ❤️
To be honest I wasn't going to post this exact photo, I had taken another one in the very same spot, but I'm doing a headstand on this ledge above the Seine, and not wearing my coat. 🙈
Maybe it's a better photo that would have gotten more attention, but truthfully this silly one kind of sums me up more accurately - the real me when I'm not upside down... just a basic cheeseball who can't quite nail the right hand placement while standing upright for a kitschy pic... 🙊🗼

Day 36 : Isfahan, Iran
Built in the peak of the Safavid Dynasty in 16th century Iran, in order of Shah Abbas II, the illustrious Pol-e Khaju (Khaju Bridge) is a very unique gem in Iranian and global architecture. Since it was built, travelers and visitors from all across the nation and globe came to value its beauty. Lavishly decorated in beautiful tiles and paintings, it connects southern and northern Isfahan separated by Zayande Rood (River). Old inscriptions tell of a bridge existing here since the Timurid Dynasty; the Khaju Bridge seen today is a complete remodelling of the initial Timurid foundation.
This masterpiece served as a public meeting place, leisure spot for the Shah, a dam and a bridge. The 133 meter bridge is comprised of two stories. The top floor has an open central passageway that was intended for the passing of horse carriages and carts. The east and west sides of the passageway are vaulted paths that connect the arches all along the bridge. All 24 arches of the illustrious old bridge provide little sheltered resting and relaxing areas for visitors. The bottom floor of the bridge is also comprised of many vaulted areas and steps leading into the water, as resting pads. In the center of the bridge the Shah had built an octagonal room with a terrace overseeing the magnificent view. This luxurious pavilion was also a very attractive and popular tea house, back in the day. Nowadays, a small bookstore has taken its place and all that’s left of the Shah’s lounge is a stone seat.
