Alison Wearing gives us her view of life inside Iran as an Iranian women traveling on her honeymoon. Alison had a male friend traveling with her and they pretended that they were on their honeymoon. Alison describes what it was like to wear the chaador, the hospitality of the various people they meet, as well as she and Ian's experiences during their "honeymoon" through Iran. I don't usually enjoy travel books, but I couldn't put this one down.
