After you land to the “Imam Khomeini” in Tehran, the first things that you see out of the airport are taxicabs and a flower shop, open at 2.00 am too.
Despite other countries, in Iran you send flowers as a present not only to women and girls, but also to men and boys: when Iran and USA national football teams met each other at FIFA World Cup France 98, before the kick off, Iranian captain Abedzadeh gave a big bouquet of flowers to US captain Dooley and then the two teams took a photo together.
In your first Persian day, wake up and try a full Iranian breakfast. Black or green tea, milk, bread, butter, cheese, walnuts, eggs, cucumbers, cake, lemonade and fruits.
Yes, fruits, from different zones of Iran: in autumn pomegranades from Saveh, in winter sweet lemons (Citrus limetta) from Jiroft, in spring melons from Bandar Abbas, in summer watermelons from Mashhad.
