“The historical sites are wonderful and your freedom in walking around them is not possible in so many places in the Western world where the tourist crowds are so large. The Iranian people we met were so friendly. You can walk the streets at night, taking photographs, with no safety issues at all. The Western view that Iran is a dangerous place to go, is unfounded. Having said that, the traffic is intimidating. I had expected Iranian women to be very restrained, but they were friendly, lively and seemed to be enjoying life, taking endless photographs of each other. Whenever I asked if I could take their pictures, the answer was always yes and then they would pose while laughing and waving. This was for both young and old. Delightful and unexpected.”
