Muştarijoni arzanda,

Anoosheh kalon xonumi farroşī dar utoqi liʙospazī jakero joft.
Asʙoʙhoi gunoguni digari musiqī mavçudand va dar qaʙuli onho.
Agar şumo fikr kuned,
ki mo kūmak karda metavonem,
tanho ʙo Goncehi kalon harf zaned.

Dear customers,
maybe you have lost your rawap?
Big Anoosheh the cleaning lady found one in the dressing room.
There are various other musical instruments and that at reception.
If you think we can help,

Gentlemen,
please do not hunt huge sheep in the changing room.
It just doesn’t fit the health and safety.
Injured sheep can cause serious damage to the curtains and that.
Why don't we talk with big Shirin on reception ?
She is an experienced mountain guide and can show you
where to take these special sheep.

Gentlemen,
tomorrow evening the ladies will perform their annual tverkatkhon
with the help of the builders of the needy yurts.
If you want to watch the dance carefully,
please speak at the reception with the great Mehrnushi.
She can lend you a powerful optical device,
such as a telescope or binoculars,
for a small fee.
