Here is a quick look at Tehran, Iran. At first glance it can come across as a polluted, traffic-infested, mess. However, with a little exploration and some locals to show you the way, the city reveals some amazing places.
If Medellin is off the tourist map, then Tehran is in a parallel tourist universe. I do know of one person who traveled there recently, and had no troubles (Cameron, Australia), while another of my friends (Charlie, China) is eying it for the future. As for me, I can safely say I'd rather hit the beaches of Brazil and the mountains of Peru before heading back to the Middle East.
