http://asianhistory.about.com/od/iran/p/iranprofile.htm Foreigners to Iran are often asked by the locals:
“Where do you come from?”
“Do you like Iran?”
Friends often asked me these questions when told I was going to Iran for a tour.
“Why are you going to Iran?”
“Is Iran not a safe country to go?”
Iranians we met are very friendly. A smile and a wave of your hand to strangers will get you the same response. Iran is very safe. We encountered no hostilities and our lives were not endangered at all times. In fact, we had a lost hand phone and a camera found and returned.
Iranians like to have their photos taken with us, Asians.
