Hello I am from Shiraz, I have many good memories from this location, I met with many foreign tourists, for example the friends from France, and one day,I met there with American veteran tourist man with his wife, I took him a Tehran times news paper, I told his wife that I am studied English literature. I met with some Iraqis friend too, they were an Iraqi family with four or five children, at all Tomb of Hafez is a collection of good memories to being with deferent foreign friends from different nationalities, as I told some of my experience's. In conclusion in one sentence"as a citizen of Iran, Hafez Tomb is the best symbols of peace and friendships for me"
