Happy Yalda !

I just found a beautiful photo of Yalda Night table on the internet and it's my pleasure to share it with you.
Happy Yalda ! one of the beautiful ancient Persian ceremonies which makes people closer to each other.
The ceremony has its roots in ancient Persia and thousands years ago. Persians (or Iranians) in Yalda night eat watermelon, pomegranate, trail mix and try to have fun with dance and music. Reading the poems of Hafez, 14th century Persian lyric poet, is another part of Yalda Nigh celebration. (Source: PDN)

Google Persian Type does not work today! :(

Since hours ago Google Persian Type section does not work! :(
I hope it's a technical and temporary problem, not related to the Western sanctions against Iran (which actually I think target poor people, not the government).

Magnificent Building of Antwerp Central Station in Belgium

The building of Antwerp Central Station in Belgium is actually a magnificent historical palace.

The original station building was constructed between 1895 and 1905 as a replacement for the original terminus of the Brussels-Mechelen-Antwerp Railway. The stone clad terminus buildings, with a vast dome above the waiting room hall were designed by Louis Delacenserieand the vast (185 metres long and 44 metres high) iron and glass trainshed by Clement van Bogaert. The viaduct into the station is also a notable structure designed by local architect Jan Van Asperen.

The station is now widely regarded as the finest example of railway architecture in Belgium.
