Great pics! So many shots out of the car ... were you the driver? A friend told me that driving in Tehran should be pretty hard even without handling a camera.

Hi Kame,

Sorry to get back to you late. Those trees in Tehran are called Plane Trees. In Persian they are called Chenar trees

Here is the article about them from Wikipedia:

Great pics, great eye opener for those who have wrong (or limited) ideas about Iran!

By the way, Alitezar, I read in a french newspaper that there´s still a significant jewish community in Iran (about 20,000 people). Do you know how is the relation between musilm majority and this jewish community in your country? Could you tell me something about this?

Other question: I´d like to go to Teheran someday and take my wife together. Do the foreign women use to dress like a muslim woman, with the veil, or she could walk in the streets without a veil.

Keep on doing this good job and showing the world the real life in Iran!

Hi Rafael.

Thanks for the comment. You may visit the Tehran pictures in my signature. I have thousands of pics there and Yes your wife has to have the scarf and an overcoat in Iran. Dress code unfortunately is for all women even tourists. It sucks but you can have so much fun visiting though. Iran is very safe and well civilized country and you'll have a great time.

below is the link to Tehran thread and you can see lots of pictures of women and how they dress up

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=351718

Also below is the link of testimonials of tourists visiting Iran:

http://www.key2persia.com/hospitality.htm

I hope this gives you a good idea.

Whenever you decide to go let me know to give you cool tips on where to go..

All the best

Below is some sample of veils in Tehran (how your wife needs to cover her hair) actually it can be stylish in some ways too

here is a post from my Teharn thread:

As you may all know in Iran after the revolution 30 years ago the Islamic government took over and they require all women to at a scarf to cover their hair as well as an overcoat, which sucks, but this is how it looks.

It used to be worse at first. They wanted women to have long overcoats but thanks to strong and brave women activists at least they have come up with these shorter over coats and less of a hasle in wearing scarves.

But Iran is a very safe place for all tourists and very fun and filled with amazing historic sites not in Tehran since it's a modern city but in other historic cities of the country.

I find it quite amusing, that most women on the pics stress the dress code as much as they can. The scarf is usually moved back so that you can see the hair... and a lot of clothes are actually very close-fitting... really sexy

Yes, but once in a while the government puts dress code crackdowns and fines women randomly for not having a proper veil. Also if your veil is not very well covered sometime they arresst you, which is a lot of headache therefore you need to watch out sometimes. It's very sad but if people protest against it they throw them in jail
