Join us Tuesday, October 6th, at 4:30pm in Pick 218 for the first talk of Autumn quarter, by Alexandra Hoffman!
خاطراتی از سفر به ایران
Memories of a trip to Iran
در این گفتار عکسهای زیاد از سفرم به ایران در این تابستان نشان میدهم، درباره کلاسهای زبان و زندگی خانوادگی صحبت میکنم، فکرها درباره میکاپ (آرایش) ومراسم ازدواج ونظریات درباره خریدن زیرپوش وزیبای پستههای تازه بیان میکنم
In this talk, I’ll show a lot of pictures from my trip to Iran this summer, I’ll talk about language classes and family life, I’ll share thoughts on make-up and wedding ceremonies, observations on where to buy underwear and the beauty of fresh pistachios.
We are pleased to share recordings of the following nine Persian Circle presentations, which took place during the winter and spring of 2013. These have never been posted before (and indeed were feared lost in a hard drive crash). Without further ado:
