Iran is a country about which we hear a lot, but know relatively little. This entertaining and insightful book, refreshingly written, follows an eventful journey and exposes the life and people inside a complex and misunderstood country. From the bustling bazaars of downtown Tehran to the majestic mosques of Esfahan. Illicit wine tasting and encounters with the opposite sex in Shiraz, to the winding old city of Yazd and an unexpected stint of school teaching, exploration of the world's hottest desert before the climax of some religious martyrdom in the east of the country en route to the Afghan border. Amongst many other things, the author meets religious mullahs, helps to unearth a mass murderer, survives an attack by wild dogs and eats camel kebabs in the desert. All is not quite as you imagine it to be in Iran.
