I see ..*shook her head as sighed a little* Lenny , Cara , i guess the documentary that you are talking about probably has been made about some local tribes who are living in the eastern part side of IRAN in the heart of the nature , these people have lived like this for over thousands years, free and away from big cities , but they are only a very little part of our nation , our population is near 65 million ( i am not sure about the correct number tho but i believe it should be even more) and too many great cities , like Tehran , the capitol of IRAN , which is one of the biggest and most advanced cities in middle east ..
the way you were describing IRAN is look like i say USA is only the country of cowboys and cattlemen , people riding on horses and shooting each others by shotguns in streets and bars !! ( no offence , just trying to give a sample here )
anyway , i hope you like checking these links and see the secret beauty of a lovely country which have been hidden behind the veils of ignorance and negative propaganda .. Enjoy !
Exactly! He asked for what I thought about Iran, and those were what I thought after watching the documentary and could remember. Of course, that domentary only showed some parts of Iran, and those parts had different cultural practice than other places in Iran, which were related to the topics that were in my book. Did I need to cite a whole history page of Iran to make me sound smart and unprejudiced to you all? I'm tired of citing everything and then getting scolds from others for being 'know it all'. He asked for what I thought, and I gave you all what I thought at that moment. Whatever I wrote in my post is only a part of Iran, however, it doesn't meant it's not true. By the way, I used probably. *pouting....*
