safety in Iran
we are in iran at the moment and everything seems to be peacfull here. I think I even felt a bit more unsafe in eastern turkey.
everyone here is very friendly and helpful in a genuine way. (someone even stopped next to us to give us some fruits!)
this impression is shared by everyone we met yet and I personally think there is no big danger in going into Iran at the moment.
thats all for now,
P.S.: it is better to change money on the iranian side, you'll find that the turkish money changers are quite aggressive. the best quote i got was 5500 iranian rials for 1 mio. turkish liras.
