Beyond the tourist destinations of Gorgan, beyond the crowded “hot spots ” like Nahar Koran, and beyond some winding roads; a tank full of gas will take you to the beautifully mesmerizing forest of Tooskestan, Iran.
The first thing you notice about Tooskestan are these ginormous trees, with amazing, glistening leaves that are just as captivating as an ornamented Christmas tree–while laying underneath. You can sit in these trees too, they’re so amazingly huge! And wouldn’t you know, these trees are called Tooske trees? So land of tooske, it is.
It is here, the forest, where there is no wi-fii, no contact with the outside world, it’s just us homo s. sapiens surrounded by the sounds of nature–enjoying the company of each other. We survive through a day or two–without all the humanly things we think we need.
We relax and in the forest, we feel at peace with our surroundings, mostly we behave like all other animals in our kingdom
The things we hear, the sights we see are magical and beyond belief.
We play. We sing. We pick, eat and explore. Most of all we forget about things like prejudice, hatred and war.
Then, we pack up our bags and hope to come back again.
