What a hospitality!November 28, 2017 in Iran ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C
It all started with a marathon through several classes of an English school and ended three days later with a heavy-heartedly good bye.
Teymour, Rooshanak and their son Nima incorporated us in their family and from the beginning it felt like we were a part of it. We went to the sea and countryside together, visited other family members and saw their houses. We had great conversations, lots of laughs and enjoyed delicious food.
We learned a lot about family life in Iran, cultural specifics and habits, how to play the Santoo, teacher motivation, problems of the educational system, independency of the government and still protest, the sadness of Iranian music, Iranian jokes about the wedding night and that women are actually not allowed to ride a bike (and policemen turning a blind eye to it).
We were fascinated by their beautiful carpets, slept, ate and sat on them and made the mistake too say how much we like them so that Teymour's uncle asked us for an address to send a carpet to.
There is so much on our mind about these days that we hardly find words. Thank you for a great time and everything you did for us!Read more
