After visiting over 60 countries on the globe, I can say with certsintkt that in Iran I met the nicest people there is.
Arriving in Tehran as a tall brown tattooed with no beard guy, I was a little apprehensive. But everywhere I went I was greeted with enthusiasm and warmth.
I was in Tehran for business; had a few meetings lined up per day. On day 2, the cab driver that was taking me around nyst have understood my routine; I go in an office for 20-30 minutes then come out and off to the next meeting.
After my 3rd meeting that day, I was offered lunch as we ended around 1pm; which means I ended up spending more than the usual 30 minutes. As soon as I got in the cab, Ali in the most thoughtful gesture ever, told me ‘I figured out you must be hungry, I got you a sandwich.”
I am so touched to this day.
And that is just one of the great moments I experienced in Iran. I cannot wait to go back.
