I had no idea what things are like in Tehran, but it seems like the standard (cleanness etc) is at first class or at least almost first class! (oh and in Iran's foe USA, the NY Subway is....eh...)

Why is it that Iranians don't shave? Is there a ban on razor blades?

In Iran there are people who shave and people who don't, like any where else in the world.

Just the fashion in the middle east. Maybe they think it looks more manly.

Tehran's Metro Suburban Line connecting Tehran to its huge suburb of 3 Million people, the city of Karaj in the west. This is line 5 of Tehran's Metro.

It's still called Tehran Metro since it covers west of Tehran and goes to the suburb city of Karaj at the end of line 5 (Green Line)

sorry for the multiple posts, sarbaze tabarestan.

i just cannot bear keeping quiet over some REALLY stupid (like duh!) and even preposterous politically-motivated comments in a thread discussing the marvels of an iranian subway system.

Why didn't they actually build on the second line, they could extend the second line but instead they added a new line (line 5) and made people to change from line 2 to line 5 in order to go to western Tehran.

I have no idea why, maybe they did not want to have one line stretch too long since I have seen it in other subway lines in other countries.

Does anyone know why they don't extend one line and merge it with other ones?
