This is a picture of the Tehran City Theatre (Shahr Theatre). It is located in one of my favorites spots in Tehran, the crossroad of Vali Asr and Enquelab. Close to many universities the area is very lively, with many art students and hipsters gathering for a drink at the nearby Café Godot, a friendly place solely decorated with photographs of Samuel Beckett.

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.
The Tehran Bazaar is unbelievably huge. according to one carpet vendor we met there it is 25kms wide, holds 200 000 stores and sees 1 million visitors every day. Even though these figures are probably completely imaginary , I did spend almost an hour trying to escape from the kitchen appliances section, and after a morning of wandering I still hadn’t bought a thing, as I could not locate any spices or any other random souvenir
