The Iranians are among the most welcoming and hospitable people we’ve ever met. Genuinely happy to see us, they often stop for a chat, curious about our life and our opinion about Iran. Quite openly they also give us their own opinion about their country and its repressive government. Every day people offer us tea or bread, invite us to restaurants or their home, or want to guide us around their town. Quite incredible, given the image Iran has in the west.
