Don't ask a woman her age,
A man his Salary,
Or a British museum where they get all their artifacts.

Dear Rick Steves,
My 8 year old half-Persian identical twin girls (born in the U.S. and never been to Iran) BEG to watch this episode of yours over and over. We’ve seen it more times than i can count. They keep asking “when can we visit Iran?!” My heart aches. Because as much as i yearn to go (i haven’t been back since i was 7), i know it can’t be anytime soon. And so we live vicariously through this video of yours, Rick Steves. Thank you for showing the world who the Iranian people truly are. Iranians love you.

I was really moved by the woman's statement. "Governments make war, people don't".

Iranians treat American tourists with a lot of love and hospitality - I know this first hand - much love from U.S. 🙏🤲💌

I've met a number of Iranians and without exception they are great people.

and to add, the Iranians never rigged elections, or interfered with other countries, that caused so much death, the simple reason is expanding empire, through corruption..modern Iran never invaded another country, its time we stopped invading on lies for profit..and control..

I recently watched a vlog from a young New Zealand backpacker showing Iran and it's friendly people and it's beautiful country. Now this video has confirmed to me, that we in the west have been lied to with propaganda for too long. Im Australian and i wish i could visit Iran and meet it's people. Thanks to Rick for this. Peace to Iran.

Covering the head is simply ecologically intelligent. This has been common across the lands.

Great presentation Rick. This should be shown in every school as a part of the curriculum. Just shows that we have far more in common than the propaganda tells us.
