Tehran…..From a recent visitor…….

Yesterday a woman that I work with returned from visiting relatives in Tehran, Iran….

I was very interested in here impressions of the countries main city…..

At work ..in the past…she has ranted about the current Government of the country….NOT the country…..

She smiled and  recounted several things…..

First……

She related that people who she encountered where for the most VERY unhappy with the countries president…..

From cab drivers, to young people in the street….

Most spoke in hushed terms against the government and its policies…

Second…..

Tehran is busy!

She could not get over the traffic in the streets and the ‘drivers who seem to have no rules….just GO’….

Third……

The young women…

She looked at me and shook her head….saying…..Oh my Gosh!…..Make-up, Hair, tight jeans……

Beautiful young women…..

Just out there…

Note…..I got the impression from her that the person on the street really doesn’t hate American’s at all…..especially…..Iranian-Americans who have gotten out and come back to visit…

The police..I asked her?

They are there but….She smiled…But they can’t stop EVERYBODY……and they seem to want things to be quiet for the time being……
