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 have been truckdriving all over Europe and North america for 27 years. I have been drinking tea with Iranian truckdrivers in Switzerland and chatting with pakistan drivers in Canada. I can tell you after all these years in hundreds of  towns and places I have been to. We are all the same. Its the leaders that are messing it all up.

As a Saudi, this documentary made me realize how much we share in common with our Iranian brothers and sisters, i wish our nations could unite, understand and sympathize with each other .

I think it's a beautiful country, the people are very respectful beautiful people and there is nothing wrong with having family values

This is one of the greatest videos Rick Steves ever published. Everybody should watch it. Make it part of the School Curriculum (social studies). All of us need to realize that it is only a few people (narcissistic rulers and greedy business) that spoil it for all of us. I count on the fulfillment of Psalm 37: 10 and 11.
