Tehran has always had "oddball weather" in that it could vary greatly. It has to do with the surrounding mountains or something like that. The weather can change pretty quickly.Welcome to the forum,
I 'am curious if your part of the world is getting oddball weather patterns like most of the rest.
And what is the real citizens take on the rest of the world, without involving religion if we can for at least a while :wave:
We celebrate Nouruz; new light. We celebrate it at the first day the new year with a big festival with lots of food.Do you celebrate the New Years? If so, what do you do?
USA have definitely been given more negative attention than any other western country and it has to do with that many people who are negative to the west see USA as the driving force behind the conflict.Thanks for the answers, I am also wondering do you or people there see Canada and the USA as different countries or are "we" just the "west"??
The sad thing is that in Iran people see this kind of thing as nothing but progress. No one thinks of the dangers, the reduced biodiversity and risk that someone made a mistake while making the GMO.:welcome: Glad to have more members! And hope that your prepping is going well!
I am more interested in your countries veggies and plants--do you grow your own and if so are they nice passed down heirlooms or have you fallen under the evil monsatanos GMO push and had to give up any of your heirlooms?
When it comes to economic freedoms Iran is essentially no different from any western country, you can buy and sell houses as you wish, pick where you work and you pay taxes. Some taxes, like Islamic taxes, are voluntary, but both Muslims and atheist (secularised) "Muslims" generally pay them. The ones that doesn't pay Islamic taxes are generally religious minorities like Jews and Christians.It would be really interesting to know more about daily life in Iran, to give us a perspective of the people other than all the "war news" we get.
I'm sure it would help to see each other as just people, working toward what it takes to carry on from day to day.
What is a typical day like for a regular person in Iran? What freedoms do you have for choosing things like where to live, where to work, and so forth?
Well, if we get too noisy about that kind of thing here, we might see some other sides of our government too!It's not until you have opinions about how to run the country that you really see the dictatorial nature of the government.
I have a computer and internet and with that I read a lot, watch films, tv-series and play some games, but there is a lot of censorship on the internet. Bloggers and other opinion makers are often the primary victim of the censorship.Well, if we get too noisy about that kind of thing here, we might see some other sides of our government too!
I'm enjoying learning the things you have been telling us.
What sort of things do you do for recreation? I mean, just for example, what do YOU like? Are there movie houses, sports fields where people can just go play games, parks or hiking trails? Do people go fishing or hunting? Camping? I know what Americans like to do, espcially things like cook-outs and amusement parks in the summer, and so forth.
But what do you and/or the people of Iran enjoy?
And on a more serious subject, are they afraid that the situation between the US and Iran will worsen? Are there "preppers" in Iran?
Makes you wish we could all just get along, and enjoy life.
I agree, and I hope with all my heart that a conflict never happens, and maybe one day our nations will be friends again.I personally would think a conflict with the US would be a catastrophe for us and should be avoided at all cost.
