    There's a video on youtube where dude rode a motorbike across Iran and says it's his favorite country, with some of the friendliest people on earth. Seems that way.

    Here it is:

    I was hanging out with some Swedish dudes in Copenhagen who were talking about good places to ski, and they brought up Tehran. They'd gone just a few years ago. It totally threw me for a second but then I remembered there wasn't nearly as much stopping a Swede from going there. Even as an American I understand it can still be done. It sounds really tempting actually. I'd love to just see what it was like and try to enjoy some of the local customs. I hear the food is pretty good too.

    As an American, I have no idea why you would spend your hard earned money and time off to goto Iran out of all the places in the world you could go for a vacation. It reminds me of those awful trips that end up on various TV programs due to some catastrophe... I'm always thinking "why the fuck would you spend money and time to go do that?"

    Vacations mean different things to different people.. some people would rather see interesting places while others want to relax on the beach. By the accounts of friends who have been there, Iran is a very safe and welcoming country to Western tourists. One of my friends is from Iran and he keeps bugging me to visit his country with him, and I have to keep reminding him our governments don't get along :(

    US citizens need to be part of a guided tour to get a travel visa

    You can see lots of interesting places that don't involve a hostile government / lethal insects / awful diseases / deadly animals / guerrilla warfare / or all of the above. Doesn't have to be a beach.

    lol, I don't think there's any more guerrilla warfare or deadly insects in Iran than there are in Detroit and Texas, respectively
    I've visited plenty of countries like Laos, Cambodia, heading to Myanmar soon, with governments I don't support, but the money I spend traveling thankfully doesn't support the government, it goes into the hands of local people (well, mostly). I try to spend well when I travel as well, supporting local enterprise and environmentally friendly tourism. I think it's important to make the distinction between governments and their people

    I wish one day I can go on a vacation, nice private hotel, a beach side, read the books I want to read. Drink the drinks I want to drink as slow as possible. Go to a open, local concert (jazz or the likes). Anywhere void of insects. Mild weather. Somewhere I can travel by foot or bicycle. And I do not need to carry a backpack around all day (maybe a tote or sorts at most).

    Some place where I can basically do nothing and everything I want.

    ha, it was great meeting everyone, and fun chatting with your lovely wife (who at one point extolled your attractiveness as a function of your virtuousness).



    yeah, sorry to have missed you. let's all try to get together for a meal and/or drinks sometime soon-- maybe between thanksgiving and xmas? (anyone in the nyc area or who will be in town should feel free to join.)

    I know Mister Freedom isn't most people's bag here, but speaking of all these great places, apparently MF's SS15 collection is titled "Saigon Cowboy." Kind of excited

    The trunk show was a good time. Everybody from I met from SW&D was super friendly, as expected. (I suppose the unfriendly ones must have stayed home)

    -The first day somebody mistook me for @LA Guy. "You want the 5'11" Asian dude in the 4zip moto" (There should be some photos of us wearing each other's 4zips)
    -The scotch was good. I probably had way too much. (Mrs. LA Guy could probably drink me under the table)
    -I finally worked up the courage to ask @Synthese to try on the Cloak shearling. (I imagine girls must get super nervous around him)

    I also wandered over to Margiela in Greenwich. This has @RegisDB9 written all over it.
