Zurkhane





We have shot at 4 different zurkhanes in the last week. Every time we go to a new place we are invited to another. I have been learning the different styles and training along with the regulars at each of them. Morshed Hamid and Omid's wife's uncle, Daie Husayn, have been my trainers. Shooting in these spaces is a major challenge and not being behind the camera for the majority is a bit stressful.

Salam baradar:

The Zurkhaneh is the most awesome training for the body. It looks like you went to Mashhad which has one of the best gyms in the country for varzesh bastani workouts. Had I known you would go, I could have let you borrow my zurkhaneh pants.

Enjoy the rest of your stay, and inshallah I will see you when you are back in town.
