Project 6060 – Lesson 38
Skiing in Shiraz
Last year, my mother and father wanted to go to Iran for the Christmas holidays. They wanted to take me with them too, but I wanted to go to Switzerland to ski.
My father said that Iran also has really good ski slopes. At first I didn’t believe him because I thought it didn’t snow in Iran, but upon my father’s insistence, I finally accepted to go to Iran.
When the aeroplane landed at the Tehran airport and we got off the plane, I saw that everywhere was full of snow. We went from the airport to my grandmother’s house and stayed there for two days. From there we went to Shiraz. My father wanted to show us the sights of Shiraz, like Takht-e Jamshid (Persepolis), Pasargad and the Vakil Bazaar, and take us to a ski slope near to Shiraz.
In Shiraz, we wanted to stay at dear Uncle Arash’s house, but he and his family were on a trip, so we decided to stay at a hotel. On the first and second day, we saw some sights, but I wanted to go skiing sooner. Therefore, on the third day, we went by bus to the ski slope. I couldn’t believe it. It was both huge and deserted. We stayed at a four-star hotel. The rooms there were both clean and cheap.
For skiing we got a trainer and rented ski equipment, trousers, jackets, boots, hats and goggles. I skied every day with my father and mother from morning until late afternoon.
I had so much fun on that holiday and after two weeks, I didn’t want to return to England.
