Tehran, 17 khordad 1396

تهران، چهارشنبه ۱۷ خرداد ۱۳۹۶

On 7 June 2017 I couldn’t imagine to read so bad news from Tehran: a double attack to Iranian Parliament (Majles) and  to Imam Khomeini mausoleum. Various videos, pics, tweet, posts, articles, everywhere one word: terrorism. In the Persian Calendar the day is 17 khordad 1396, surely a historical date in the history of Iran.

To fear is human, but human is not only to fear. This is the reason why I want to post everyday a pic from Iran – not only Tehran – showing how life normally goes on there.

Gol be gol – negozio fuori dall’aeroporto Imam Khomeini

Dopo essere atterrati all’ “Imam Khomeini” a Tehran, le prime cose che vedete fuori dall’aereoporto sono i taxi e un negozio di fiori, aperto anche alle 2 di notte.

Al contrario che in altri Paesi, in Iran si regalano fiori non solo alle donne e alle ragazze, ma anche agli uomini e ai ragazzi: quando le nazionali di calcio di Iran e Stati Uniti si affrontarono ai Mondiali di Francia 98, prima del fischio d’inizio il capitano iraniano Abedzadeh donò un grande mazzo di fiori al capitano americano Dooley, e poi le due squadre fecero una foto insieme.

Nel vostro primo giorno persiano, quando vi svegliate provate una colazione completa iraniana. Tè nero o verde, latte, pane, burro, formaggio, noci, uova, cetrioli, torta, limonata e frutta.

Sì, frutta, proveniente da diverse zone dell’Iran: in autunno melograni da Saveh, in inverno limoni dolci (Citrus limetta) da Jiroft, in primavera meloni da Bandar Abbas, in estate angurie da Mashhad.

Welcome to Iran

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.
