Reblogged this on The Streets of Iran – خیابان های ایران.
When I read the title of this article memories came back from myself in Iran in 2002. I was visiting from Europe and I could not cross the street alone, I was just to afraid.
BTW if you are interested in Iran take a look at the photos on my blog:
Thank you very much. I had a good visit with your blog which I greatly enjoyed (as someone who has only been in Iran one time, it opened up many windows and thoughts.)
And while we are going to stick very much to cities and how people get about in them (and can get about better in them) where we have common ground with you is our firm belief that at the core of all these issues is one thing, culture.
Of course if you and your camera ever take to the Streets of Iran to show us all the good, the bad and the ugly, we will be glad to have a close look and selectively share with our readers (who are this point consist of only a first handful, but that’s how World Streets started to, and today we have 5k signed-in readers.
