Like many countries Iran has many accents. This is a very funny story of an Iranian who moved around Iran a lot. As he moves from place to place, this very gifted comedian changes his accent, and also describes the various idiosyncrases of that area. Absolutely superb and refreshing reminder these days, when Iranian culture is up against politics, religion, and commerce.

Pretty amazing aerial photos of Iran.
When Georg Gerster first flew over Iran on a business trip, he decided that he should somehow photograph the contours and colours that he saw passing beneath him. The Swiss aerial photographer bypassed officialdom by hand-delivering a request, in October 1975, to the Imperial Court in Tehran. Within weeks, Gerster was meeting an Iranian official anxious to know what kind of aircraft should be purchased. The Empress Farah, it seemed, had taken a liking to the project.
