A comment on Saraban-
‘Greg & Lucy: your SARABAN took me back to my childhood in the 60s -I am just old enough to remember the last of the camel caravans coming into town on the outskirts of Tehran – we would hear their bells and go running to see them traipse by – always a great spectacle! Your book is the most beautiful book I have seen on Iran and its culture, in… well, ever! Thank you for this gem!’
