Today I received an email related to one of my images about Tehran, Iran.
I always read the comments to my images.
These two comments was very interesting about my home country, Iran.

Dimitri said: "Funny thing is that when most people think of places like Tehran they never consider snow or cold. We always associate it with heat and sand."
or
George said "Kombizz: I like the photos posted here as well as the photos on your USEFILM site. All are very informative and allowed me to see an Iran that I did not know existed. You are right, it is a beautiful country and very much unlike the country I have imagined. Thanks for sharing. "

h e r e

So, there we are, either by viewing images from another town, or country or by visiting them as a tourist, we could find a much better view about those places like Tehran with all of the beautiful places all around.

Yeah, Iran is a mystery, for many of us. Not many tourists go there, so nobody is talking about what it is like there, like they do about many other countries.

I was also surprised, when I started reading about Iran, that there is snow in Winter. I thought is would always be hot there.

Kombizz, what temperatures can I expect in Esfahan, at the end of October. And what else will it be like? Rain? Snow? Wind?

Do you why people call Isfahan (Nesfe Jahun) is the HALF OF THE WORLD ?
If you canit find the answer, simply ask?

@ Latarina
It is very difficult to answer to this question, unless you travel to Isfahun Nesfe Jahun and find it by yourself.

The clue to this question is connected to some of those old mosques and Maydun-e Naghshe Jahun.
UNESCO

Of course, it would be much better to go with some background about Islamic Culture and tradition.

Apparently Mel from Ireland try to travel to Iran in October 2007 with closed dogma about the Iranian & Islamic women. Therefore I doubt if she could find the answer !

Kombizz, what temperatures can I expect in Esfahan, at the end of October. And what else will it be like? Rain? Snow? Wind?

Ref 1

Very few religions, if any, respect women.
Is there even one religion in existance, that respects women as being equal to men?

Ref 2

Perhaps all of us should wait till Mel goes to her journey to Iran and find out about her observation and perhaps the answer to this question.

RESPECT & NAMASTE'

kombizz, please avoid unnecessary cross-postings. If you wish to continue the discussion in the Off Topic forum or respond to any of the post you find unrepresentative of your culture, I suggest you post in the referenced thread. Let's avoid moving this thread off topic. Thank you.

I think, if u are going to start topics, on a public forum, u will have to accept, that everybody who replies does not share your opinion.

And I think it is wise, when talking about subjects that people have strong opinions on, to not hold gurdges against people, and let differences go, when discussing other topics, in other threads. Otherwise, we will only be able to discuss bland topics, and I think that would make this site boring.
Anyway, I hope we can talk in peace, in future, even if we dont always agree, with each other, because I think being able to talk about subjects openly is very enlightening.
