tehran 24 is a photo blog featuring daily photos from, well, Tehran -- of course! I learn more about life in foreign countries by 'reading' a photo blog than I ever do by listening to the news.
Tehran, and Iran in general, looks like a lovely place. I wouldn't want to live in any country (or state) where religious fundamentalists have so much power, but other than some obvious differences, life looks the same in Iran as it does in much of the developed world.
Photos of Whidbey Island? Sure thing, coming right up.
