Neither East Nor West: A Safarnameh

Safarnameh is the farsi/persian word for travelogue, or literally, travel letter.

This book was truely a wonderful safarnameh about one woman’s journey through the Islamic Republic of Iran, in the mid-90s.

Many things we westerners dont know about Iran, but this book certainly was an eye opener that helped to dispel many of the american/western misconceptions about Iran and her ppl.

It is a travelogue, but also a western window to this all too forbidden place. While Iran is still currently on the No American Travel list at the state dept, I would certainly like to go. More then Cuba? Perhaps.
