FIRST TO COMPLETE IN TEHRAN, IRAN

We are from the beautiful land of Iran. This country is located in the south-west of Asia known as the Middle East.

My husband (24 yrs old) and my sister (17 yrs old) and I (22 yrs old) made the puzzle together. We all are students. My husband and I are going to different Universities where as my sister goes to high school.

FIRST TO COMPLETE IN TEHRAN, IRAN Well the story begins when one shiny day my husband and I saw the "World's Largest Puzzle" in one of the shops in Tehran by accident. My husband knew about my passion for jigsaw puzzles, so he decided to buy this huge puzzle for me, and we together decided to join the challenge. We started to assemble the puzzle on July 1, 2008 but after some days a trip schedule for about 10 days gave us some break. We enjoyed every minute of this puzzle, and the most important things that we learnt from this puzzle were to be patient and see each piece with our full attention.

It was a bit of a challenge between all of us to assemble it. We got together at my apartment in our free time and we didn't allocate any special time to assemble it.

Well this puzzle had both difficult and easy parts that everybody with no age limit was able to work on it. For example the balloon and the boat parts were really easy where as the city was the most difficult part.

What we observed was, even those with no interest in puzzles were very excited to see us working so hard on it, and were ready to see it completed.

We have taken several pictures from the whole work and then we separated the whole puzzle to four sections apart again so we could get it ready to move to our new house where we are planning to place it.

I have a web site showing my progress assembling this puzzle. This website is in Farsi (my mother language) and in English.
