To be fairly honest the city of Tehran is not particularly beautiful at first. There are interesting buildings, but they are scattered in different places and fairly hard to locate in the midst of dusty old buildings. As I was walking around the city center with a few friends a group of students hearing us speak English approached us and as they were English students themselves we had a quick chat – Asal, in the middle, told us that she lived in Malmoe for a few months, and she was very suprised people could live all their life in such a cold place. She also wants to write for The New Yorker.
