Tabriz and Tehran were the first two cities I visited in Iran. My arrival and the few first days, in Tabriz, had been a little chaotic and taking pictures was not my priority. I aslo thought, of some things I wanted to take a picture of, “well, I will find them somewhere else later”. Well, I didn’t! Iran is a big country, and the cities can be very different from one another, so if you see something you like, you should take a picture right away. But I didn’t know that, at the time.

And Tehran… well, ask any tourist, Tehran is not very interesting in itself. Ask a traveller:  any place can be great if you meet the right people! So, I have stayed quite some time in Tehran, because I met interesting people. But because Tehran has been more about the people that the city, I have only few pictures to show you.

But I am sure you don’t care, you are just happy that I am finally publishing something about Iran, right? And don’t worry, there is more coming soon :)
