Everyone's so busy today rejoicing over the news that the Fed is saving the world (even though they couldn't save America) that they're conveniently overlooking the burgeoning sh*tshow over in Iran. As is often the case, I've got a nagging feeling that people are making a mistake by doing so, and that they'll regret it later.
Nevertheless, I thought I'd take the opportunity myself to do a little bit of digging and research about Iran, since I'll readily admit that I know little to nothing about Iran generally (except its politics), or Tehran specifically. But this is really cool-looking, and not at all what I expected.
It seems that Iran has a fairly vibrant skiing scene, which really doesn't jive with my preconceptions of the country. Shows what I know, huh?
