"My passion and enthusiasm to talk about this city was probably back to my childhood, when my father took me, and we were going towards old part of Tehran and while he was describing his own memories with such an excitation, I was becoming ecstatic and fond of those places. Later on, I become much more addicted to my father’s habit and didn't miss any opportunity to enjoy going there. The words of the book describe my pure childish moments facing the city."--The Author
