I have a dear friend who is from Iran and lives in the US. He tells me about the wonderful hiking and things to see. He still goes back twice a year and brings back goodies like my hookah. He was in the Army there and was in the revolution....btdt.
I am trying to learn the language and it's fun, I can't wait to go.
Iran has two sides? Not sure what you are trying to prove by this. Media has never depicted Iran as a ugly country, as far as I know.
Normally the focus is on the douchebag leaders of that country...
Obviously Iran is not being called an ugly country. No one's disrespecting their culture, cities and people. But that doesn't change the fact that all we hear about in the media is Iran's "support of terrorism" and "nuclear ambitions".
What about getting to see what the people are like? There's all this fear and hostility towards Iran and all we ever do is look at the head of government's hardline posture. As if that is suppose to give us a good picture of Iran.
What about the internal political forces at work? What about Iranian students and intellectuals? We never get to hear about that.
Thanks for posting the beautiful pictures. It's nice to see what Iran is really like.
