Scoprire l’IRAN

Il 12 Aprile 2016 andrò a visitare l’Iran, in Medio Oriente. E’ molto interessante vedere un paese molto antico, dove si può trovare varietà di cibo, costumi, tradizioni, dialetti, religioni, sport.

Gli Iraniani sono quasi 80 milioni, metà della popolazione ha meno di 30 anni, molti dei quali laureati, parlano inglese oltre al farsì (persiano).

Il paese ha una superficie di 1.648.195 km2 dove potete trovare le catene montuose Zagros e Alborz, i deserti Dasht-e-Kavir e Dasht-e-Lut. A nord si raggiunge il Mar Caspio, a sud il Golfo Persico e il Golfo di Oman.
