Hello Mamuka :)
....i was not aware of this fact that iran visa is hard for foreigners! ....
Well, relatively difficult compared with many other countries. From what Iranians tell me on the internet it is way more expensive and complicated for them to visit many countries. It even seems complicated for them to get passports.
after revolution western governments initiate to have a fascist behavoiour toeward us& our government has to do the same in return!if not they might be blamed as a passive government!
It is a pity that so many governments insist on engaging in this tit for tat retaliation style of politics instead of more constructive negotiation. If these are the types of people who are making the worlds decisions.....

thanks for your comments! i agrre with you;i personaly have had visas to Swiss & schengen... but it's verys hard! i's actually impossible for a majority of iranians to obtain visa to 1srt world countries! for example i obtained Swiss visa only when the boss of a great company in Swiss stand bail for me bothe1st my all travel expenses(even though all was paid in fact by myself)& 2nd he had stood bail that i would exit of Swiss! even though he could not do so really! because he could not arrest me with a manacle and impel me to leave Swiss! but it was only my real willing to don't stay in swiss & his trust to me but anyway it was asked by embassy and since he trusted me a lot he vouched me... otherwise it was impossible to visit Swiss... i essentially don't like to live in europe because it's always CLOUDY!(even though my mother's ancestors originally are russian);in despite of his vouch embassy still asked more documents whiuch are called((TIES TO IRAN COMPELLING YOU TO COME BACK!)) such as real estates ownership, ,financial & company documents that proves that i will have a business here in iran and have to come back to pursue that &...married wife who wait for your back (this one is very ridiculous because i don't like iranian girls! so i can not marry them to obtain visa for west hahahah; even though it's also impossible to marry a wsetern girl too because i lost my heart in ukraine for 1st & last time in my life ....)... yes this is the situation we encounter when we want to obtain a visa for western countries!...
by the way, have you ever been to iran?

i essentially don't like to live in europe because it's always CLOUDY
You should try the South of Europe. That is where the sunny weather is.
this one is very ridiculous because i don't like iranian girls!
I know an Iranian guy who lives here. He is very attractive and lots of women like him but I am not sure many would take the risk of marrying and/or have children with him because of those laws in Iran. Too much of a risk when it is so much less complicated to marry a Western man.
have you ever been to iran?
Yes, I have been to Iran. I even have a blog about it on my profile page.

also i'm very attractive too!lots of girls have propsed me so far hahahah the first was when i was 21 years old! :) ; sorry for self-praising it was a joke!
OK! how do you feel about iran? i won't mind if you criticize... Reply to this
I loved Iran because of how it looks and because of the interesting culture but I dont like the laws there that dont allow people much freedom and I dont like the government or the police who enforce those laws. And I dont like the political tension between Iran, the US and Israel. And I dont like that the European Union is stuck between the Iran US situation without being able to find a way to make peace between them. Reply to this
gutten tag! i can speak over 10 languages! without attending in any foreign languages courses or having any tutor... i only learnt them by books! even i had no any tape!i'm also an ELITE iranian not an ordinary one! i have travelled a lot& experienced alot too! i have spend lot's of time online& i'm aware of the world in which we are living!((apologize for self-praising! it was only to inform you to getting to know each others deeper))
i just read your blog about your iranian travel in your profile page!
it's very genuine but at the same time very shallow! i think 1 or 2 weeks is not enough time to getting to know a country good & deep enough you have only reflected negative sides of that!iran has lot's of positive qualities & ADVANTAGES in comparison with western countries which is only comprehended by ELITE ppl both iranians or foreigners in despite of that it also has lots of disadvantages like bad system & having no freedom, anarchism, bad facilities of 3rd world countries ppl &...! i agree that we have lots of bad qualities! but there are lots of nice qualities too! i know rich iranians who have a villa in europe but are living now in iran! why? because of they can not endure MACHINIZED cold & selfish westerners ! here in eastern countries ppl ((always have time for you! while westerners never spend times for you! they want their time to be used for themselves(make more money have more fun sex &....) ..)) i have personally travelled around europe but can never live in western countries except italy & spain& portugal! why? beacuse of their culture as well as their sky which is sunny! because my heart never endure cloudy sky!i also like irish ppl for her kindness& prefer them to english ppl!
those iranians you have met have been all very LOWER class of society(i call them rubbish)! like to sick head girl with her mother& iranian man who thought to have sex with prostitutes!you can not generalize all iranians the same!for example in Swiss which is one of most civilized & modern countries of world & ppl totally are not bad but there are still a minority of very rubbish ppl bad drunk criminals &... but i will never generalize them about all Swiss ppl!...i believ that ((there are good & bad ppl everywhere!)); i also belive that a majority of ppl of world are ((simple))& to be simple has 2 meaning: 1st positive= simplehearted=kind & 2nd = to some extent stupid! so this negative one means ignorance & stupidity or lack of knowledge makes them to PREJUDGE about someone or some country which makes minds like racism fascism & other fanatic & prejudice minds... i agree that some bad qualities are found more in eastern countries like iran that are not found much in western countries! but there are also some nice qualities here that is not much popular in west!... so any nation has his own nice & bad qualities! even though we as young generations in 3rd world countries should try to reform ourselves& ....
you are very nice person&(especially i'm aware of that irish ppl are also more kind-hearted than other westerners); and don't forget the fact that any advantages you meet in iranians in particular & easterners in general in comparison with westerners is made by this same you called having no freedom!even though i disagree by iranian government! i have my own point of view & ideology,for example i don't support the IDEA of freedom for homosexual ppl in wset! i am it's strong critic!! but i also disagree with western patterns & western life-style! in fact i prefer a new model that china is closer to that even though is not the exact! though we have no any Utopia in real life! ...& i see some advantages in both westerners & easterners to each others!
one of many negative qualities of westerners is they never try to comprehendother cultures & civilizations& they are usually ignorant of other cultures & civilizations while they always expect others to comprehend theirs & repect them!
anyway; you are peacefull & nice person but justice was to write some of positive sides too! to balance your article & prove that you are not prejudice!
i won't mind if you criticize...
Do you remember making this comment, Mamuka? ;)
Anyway, I have make this thread so you and others can tell us what you would like us to know about Iran.
i have not mind yet!
i only told you should be more Fair & just to say truth! Reply to this
Would you post your comments about Iran in this thread. That is what I made it for. Reply to this
Your heart may be in the right place but your upbringing has blinded you to social reality and the ability to walk a mile in someone elses shoes...

Hello Jeanliu :)
I think because of the government restriction etc., we could hardly meet and understand people and the culture there.
The government in Iran does not in fact stop us from meeting people when we visit Iran. Curious people stopped me everywhere to ask questions and chat with me.
Iran is a country with various "cultural and historical sites".
Well yes, every country has cultural and historical sites.
