What do you know about Iran? What is your source of information? Are you one of those people who think Iran is a desert, where people use camel for transportation?! Or that Iran streets are dangerous for walking around since somebody might shoot you?
Anyway, if you’ve not visited Iran, and you are interested to know more about it, I suggest you to read this article:
The comments are interesting too!
I had heard that many foreigners (specially western citizens) have a wrong vision about Iran based on what they are fed by their media, and many of them are scared about traveling to Iran. Last year, in IranOpen 2008 RoboCup competitions, I met some foreigners there and talked with some of them. They told me the same thing! Some of them were really scared, and it was just after asking from many people who have visited Iran that they have decided to come to Iran. Even with this information, it was after coming to Iran that they forgot all of their scares!
Hopefully, I’ll see some of my foreign friends in IranOpen 2009 too! 🙂 I really like to see them again. It seems that some of them (from Netherlands and China for example) are planning to come again!
