C.lO-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 12, 1976 Tehran U3 OY$ FUN WEEKEND EXPLORE CENTRAL FLORIDA AND VISIT A Fascinating Ancient City W DISNEY WOf?tD that raced across the desert in late, late movies. A sergeant major explained various horseshoes for rough terrain or Tehran's icy winters. We toured the mass media building (two newspapers in English) and the maze of exhibits in the cultural hall. Veiled women in black robes were eating cotton candy. Traditions of an ancient culture are interwoven with modern ideas in the Persian pattern of life. Iran is fascinating.

The 16th-century Safavid and Kajar (1794-1925) periods brought intricate wooden screens and miniature paintings of horsemen, birds and floral scenes. The present Pahlavi Dynasty has developed electrical installations, refineries, women in business, and sports (soccer, water skiing, etc.) In the Shahyad Museum, Iranian articles from 4000-1000 B.C. include an Azarbadjan pottery teapot on three legs, a design still used here. Backgammon, using two ivory dice, was invented by pre-Islamic Iranians. Chess (developed in India) was also played then. A 14th-century double-walled carafe from Gorgan (in northeast Iran) was a forerunner of the Thermos bottle. Its outer surface was intricately cut pottery. The most recent exhibit in this museum was bit of the moon, given by the United States. Midday, everyone in Tehran goes home for lunch. For us, home was the Inter-Continental. Conversation in the coffee shop was mostly English but, in an Iranian mood, we ordered Khoreshteh Bademjan (eggplant lamb, sour grape sauce and rice.) Once was enough for that, preferring the Intercon's fine beef, but Bastani Pestah (pistachio ice cream) became a favorite. Iran has pistachio groves. The 50th anniversary of the Pahlavi Dynasty was being celebrated with a progress exposition at the permanent fair grounds on the fdgo of Tehran near 19,000-foot-high Mt. Damavand. There were foundations, flags, midways, automatic milking machines in the dairy barn and a mobile blood unit. The military equipment (tanks, planes and helicopters) were purchased from the United States. Iranian cavalry wear beaded brow pieces with leather strips to the nostrils and look like the black steeds By ARTHUR J. HEISER and CLARE HEISER Post Travtl Wrlttrt TEHRAN, Iran - A visit to the capital of the oldest empire in the world (over 2,500 years old) is to feel a thrust into the 21st Century. This nation is the Kingdom of Iran. Tehran, its royal seat, is a metropolis of tremendous vitality. Tehran is a city of 3Vi million people, yet very clean streets. Pedestrians are too busy dodging cars to litter, there is little sidewalk traffic, no wandering animals. Automobiles have two speeds go (breakneck speed) or stop (snarled in traffic). We stayed at the Tehran Inter-Continental which is a short and inexpensive, share-cab ride to sightseeing highlights. At first we were surprised to see two young girls standing in the road. One wore flared jeans, the other was veiled in a shapeless black Moslem Chandor robe. Everytime a car passed they bent down and called their address to the driver. (Cabs take extra passengers to the same area. ) Finally a car stopped half a block away, they ran. The girl in Chandor pulled it up, so as not to trip in high heeled shoes. A good place to start sight-seeing in Tehran is at the 150-foot-high Shahyad Monument at the end of Eisenhower Boulevard. This extraordinary, sweeping arch was built by Iran's ruler, the Shahanshah, with a 24-year-old architect graduate of I'ahlavi University. Traditional Persian blue tile covers the ceiling of a contemporary arch. One rides on a moving sidewalk through 25 centuries of history. Trick photography and Japanese-made films took us into the palace nf Cyrus the Great, highlights of ancient Persepolis and the pre-Islamic periods. A voice ushered in the Islamic era.
