Anyone in Tehran this week?

Do you feel safe, travelling there right now? If you are Iranian, what do you think about what is happening at the moment?

So, what is happening now? Are foreigners still able to easily get in and out of Iran? Anyone know of anyone travelling in Iran at the moment? Reply to this

I received a private message asking me to post the following annonomously.

hi Dear Mell Due to spy by iranian governers, I could not publish this comment in the public page of your topic, I will bw grate full if publish this comment by unknown author . I think iranian people clearly could made a difference between iranan geverners politics and our desires and our wishes. Hezbolahs soldiers killed our patiot in our streets in our country. but we could show to the world that we are believe in friendship, peace, poem, beauty and we are against iranan geverners politics. iranian people could show that we are not colleague of the irans regime in Axies of Evil (as George W. Bush said). but this declaration was so hard and expensive. tho cost was more than 21 martyr. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=related&v=76W-0GVjNEc&skipcontrinter=1

The following is from a news report of yesterday. Looks like things have certainly not quietened down in Iran. Are there any TravelBlog members there at the moment, who can give us a first hand report?

TEHRAN, Iran – Thousands of protesters streamed down avenues of the capital Thursday, chanting "death to the dictator" and defying security forces who fired tear gas and charged with batons, witnesses said.
