“Around the World in Analogue” is your bite-size guide to the most amazing travel destinations across the globe, as documented by the members of the Lomography community. Today, JC Gratila (@antiox) uncovers the mystique of four cities in Iran.
It started when someone shared the news about AirAsia opening direct flights from Singapore to Tehran, Iran on the Singapore CouchSurfing Facebook group. I looked it up on the AirAsia website right away and was surprised at how cheap the return trip is. Countries in the Middle East have always fascinated me but I have never been to one before. I took this as an opportunity to experience it, so I booked the flight.
In a span of two weeks, I managed to travel to four cities in Iran—Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Yazd—through long bus rides. This country was unexpectedly beautiful, charming, and full of character, with friendly and hospitable people.
