Great trip and photos. Iran must be pure (not a lot of tourists). :)

We found some tourist in the Teheran airport (IKIA). But out of the airport there is no tourists, NEVER!!! (probably in touristic áreas of Teheran, Shiraz or Esfahan yes, but in most Iran, people don´t think that you are touristic, they think you are turkish or something like that). Usually all is in farsi (persian), nothing in english. Even in bathrooms, sometimes there are farsi words in the doors, and without english words or a symbol of man/woman you need to investigate a bit, and this could be dangerous in a strong traditional islamic country. This is not Morocco...

Wow! I also have the luck that I look like I could be from a lot of countries. ;) In Morocco some people thought that I was Arabic (I had a little bit of a beard). It makes things easier, because I dont get a lot of attention from locals. :)

I thought just the oposite! When I am herping in the wall of a house in Morocco, usually the owner came running with a stick to hit me, and when he saw that I am tourist, he invites me to a tea!! Morocco is the best place for herping in the world
