Eric (ercohen) | 7 comments I don’t know have you ever been abroad or not? But as far as i could find it is a bit hard. Why? I will tell. You have to adapt yourself with a wide verity of rules that it would seem strange at the first step. For example, Here , in Iran , you will find paradox between words and acts. They want to show you how much they are religious but you can find the best brands of spirits in the black markets. I ‘m sure you know , it is forbidden in Islam. But , totally they behave so friendly toward strangers
