dear plussers, I was wondering if any of you have booked any villas, or houses over this website: http://www.homeaway.com/ around Venice, Italy. If you have how did you find the service? 
Thank you in advance. :)

A wonderful video made by Jadidonline.com about Hatra, and the importance of this ancient city within the Parthian city. 
Its in #persian  but enjoy regardless.

"قلمرو فرهنگی ایران بسیار گسترده‌تر از قلمرو سیاسی آن است. از این‌رو، بخش مهمی از میراث فرهنگی ایران را باید بیرون از مرزهای سیاسی‌اش جست‌وجو کرد: در افغانستان، آسیای میانه، سواحل جنوبی خلیج فارس، اَران، قفقاز، عراق و سوریه. 
عراق، کشوری که هشت سال درگیر جنگ با ایران بود، از بزرگترین میراث‌داران فرهنگ و تمدن ایران است. در زمان‌هایی طولانی از دوران اشکانیان (سده سوم پیش از میلاد تا سده سوم میلادی) و ساسانیان (سده سوم تا هفتم میلادی)، پایتخت ایران در عراق قرار داشت. این دو سلسله با امپراتوری روم در کشمکش بودند و ترجیح می‌دادند که برای حفظ امنیت مرزها، پایتخت خود را به مرز مشترک با رومیان نزدیک کنند. در این دوران، عراق به عنوان سرزمینی که پشت به تمدن‌های بین‌النهرین داده بود، تنوع فرهنگی و زبانی جالبی را به نمایش می‌گذاشت و میزبان شاخه‌های گوناگونی از نژاد سامی بود، اما استیلای ایرانیان بر این منطقه موجب شده بود که فرهنگ آریایی نیز حضور چشمگیری در آن‌جا داشته باشد. 

با سقوط امپراتوری ساسانی به دست اعراب مسلمان در سده هفتم میلادی، سرزمین پهناور ایران زیر سلطه خلفای مستقر در مدینه و کوفه و دمشق و بغداد قرار گرفت، اما از دامنه نفوذ فرهنگ ایرانی در عراق کاسته نشد و حتا در دوره آل‌بویه (سده دهم و یازدهم میلادی) ایرانیان موفق شدند که استیلای سیاسی خویش بر عراق را اعاده کنند و خلافت عباسی بغداد را برای حدود صد سال دست نشانده خود سازند.

Wishing you all a very good morning with these ancient words,

Yours is the power of imagination, mind
//the wondrous spirit, willpower; Creator of all
(Yours also is) the bright, auspicious man’s enterprise//
whose soul is in tune with excellence, ingenuity
Surrounding You (Plural- god-beings) with Melodious songs //venerating Mazdá, (creative force of will, mind-power;) in the house of music by odes of praise.

Yasná 34.2
at-čá î-töi man.ang.há//man.yé.ûš-čá vang.hé.ûš vîspá dátá

The Spring has come to Bistoon, Kermanshah. :) My sister kindly snapped these for me. It is one of my favourite places in my home province. A place steeped in history and legend. Not only it has the most impressive rock reliefs of Achaemenid era, The famous Coup d'etat of Darius I, but also boasts with the most romantic tragic legend of Iranian history.
The tale of Farhad an artisan who fell in love with the Sasanian queen of Khosrow Parviz, Shirin. The story goes that the king exiled him to Bistoun mountain with the impossible task of carving stairs out of the cliff rocks. He later killed him self on the mountain when he was fooled to believe of Shirins death... one can apparently hear his mattock hitting the rocks still...  

you can read more about the legend here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khosrow_and_Shirin
and more about the Achaemenid rock relief and what is means here:
